Reel Gardening is a patented biodegradable color-coded paper tape that encases organic fertilizer and anchors seeds at the correct depth and distance apart. This simple product uses up to 80% less water than traditional planting methodologies and eliminates seed and fertilizer waste. The paper tape absorbs the water and keeps the seed in a moist environment, aiding the germination rate.
