I discovered that empty toilet paper rolls fit perfectly in the cardboard drink trays from fast food restaurants. Just put the toilet paper rolls into the drink tray, fill them with soil and plant your seed. Once your seeds sprout you can plant the entire toilet paper roll in the ground without disturbing the plant's roots. The toilet paper roll will eventually break down completely and your plant has had a great start!

I couldn't use this tip as I plant on a large scale, but for those planting on a smaller scale, I think it is a very neat idea!
