Seedlings growing in our recycled milk sachets
Hello and thank you for sharing your experiences about home gardening on your website.
You inspired me to combine recycling with gardening at home and I converted our old and used milk sachets into pots to germinate and grow our seedlings. It works wonderfully as you can see in the attached pictures.
All we had to do was to collect the old sachets, rinse them with grey water and punch/ cut a few holes into the bottom to allow for drainage.
We than filled the milk sachets with a mix of compost, sand and fresh worm castings and planted different kinds of seeds in them, ranging from carrots to chillies, cork oaks, acacia seeds and a variety of other vegetable and tree seeds.
A lot of them germinated and are doing well. It is very exciting to see them grow. Once it is time to replant them into bigger containers or the beds in the garden we can easily reuse the milk sachets to grow our next crop.
Thank you very much for sharing your ideas and expertise about recycling, home gardening and permaculture! I am looking forward to your next blog posts and articles.
