Seed Tape for Simpler Sowing

Have you ever found your fingers to be too fat for sowing seeds from a loose packetful? If so, then seed tape may be for you.

The seeds are evenly trapped inside a long ribbon of tissue paper, and you simply tear off portions to achieve the desired spacing. The worst seeds I've had for achieving even coverage are carrots, and I don't know if they're available in tape form; if they are, I'll have some for next year!

The seeds that I've sown this way are:

  • Cucumbers & dill (cucumis sativus, anethum graveolens)
  • Snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus)
  • Loose leaf lettuce (Lactuca sativa crispa)
