Egg cartons are a great biodegradable way to do seed-start gardening. Simply cut off the sides and lid from your carton.

Place the cut lid under the carton base to catch leaking water.

Fill the holes three-quarters full with potting soil. Place your seeds in the soil then cover them with a thin layer of the potting soil.

Mist as needed to germinate. If you're using a different type of egg container, such as plastic, which doesn't drain, just punch a tiny hole in the bottom of each egg bed.
