Egg Carton Seed Starter

Cardboard egg cartons make wonderful little seed starters and they are free unlike mini peat-pots. They disintegrate in the soil and the roots can grow right through them. Fill holes egg-holes with several tablespoons of potting soil then add several seeds. I like to poke a drainage in the bottom. After your seed has sprouted and has grown a tiny bit, you'll need to plant it. Before planting it in the garden, cut out each little pod with a pair of cheap scissors.

Ad

* Be sure you only use cardboard egg cartons (not Styrofoam) if they are going to be replanted, as styrofoam won't break down like cardboard will.
