A DIY from Shirley Bovshow.


  • Seeds
  • A paper towel
  • A little flour and water
  • Toothpicks
  • A ruler
  • Colored pencil


1) First, use a pencil to mark the location of the seeds on the paper, according to the distance between seeds indicated on the seed packet (I’M SPACING RADISHES EVERY 3 INCHES)

2) Next, make your glue by mixing flour and water into a thick paste, put a dab of glue on each mark

3) Place 1-3 seeds (just one for larger seeds, several for tiny seeds on each dab of glue and wait for it to dry thoroughly)

4) Label your mat and fold and store away in plastic bag until you are ready to plant!
