I bought a cake for my daughter's birthday and I was trying not to waste anything. So I decided to use the cake platter and clear plastic lid as a mini greenhouse. I can start some of my perennials in January, so by mid June I should have quite a bunch of plants to plant.

hi my dad did dthis with his garden stuff worked awesome! durn deer ate half once planted but a whole nother story
he used the plastic muffin condtainers and ca ke whatever he could find
Wonderful idea! May I use it? :) Susan
Absolutely. Hubby bought a plastic container filled with cookies (said that our 2 year old wanted them). So that gives me another one. Between all the yogurt and pudding containers, coffee cans. I should have my hill covered in perennials. January is gonna be busy.
Wow this is neat idea. I've just got done washing this dome lid that a angel food cake came in. I thought I'd try a terrarium. Could be real neat, maybe? Thanks.
What a great idea! I was trying to think of a way to make a mini-greenhouse for my father and none of my ideas worked. This is genius! Thanks for the tip. :)
I do the same with the rotisserie chicken containers from Costco. Upside down, the top holds plenty of dirt for the pinholed eggshell halves for germination (the vents are excellent for draining) & the bottom (on top) holds in warmth & moisture.
