This time of year many people are already planting their gardens, but here in colder climates we are still a good month away from being able to put anything in the ground.  It’s not too late to get plants started indoors for a head start on outdoor planting.  Here are 5 ideas for seed starting pots using materials found around the house.  All of these items are biodegradable, so you don’t even have to take the plant out of the pot when it’s ready to be transplanted into a bigger pot or the garden – just plant the whole container!


I love this idea from Garden Therapy to use toilet paper rolls for starting seeds.  Toilet paper rolls are something we all have around and usually throw away, so this is a great way to recycle them.seed-starting1
