Instead of buying peat pots try this:
Take a can or jar about the size of the pot you want to make and wrap strips of newspaper around it. Make sure the paper strips are long enough to go around the form several times and wide enough to hang over the bottom. Wrap paper around form tuck the hang over in towards the bottom of the form, overlapping and press all around. Staple seam to keep from unraveling and set in pan/tray before filling with soil and seeds.
Can't get cheaper.
