Several used tea bags next to a package of sunflower seeds.Remove the staple and string and snip a tiny hole in your used tea bags and place your seeds inside. Keep moist and in a few days your seed will sprout.


From there, you can place in a small pot or directly into your garden. No need to remove the bag. It will protect the young root from any disturbance and pests and break down naturally. Easy and fun for adults and kiddies!

What a great idea...and I've been drinking tea (from teabags) for over 40 years! I'm sick just thinking about all those teabags that I could have used to plant seeds. Thank you for such a wonderful suggestion! Be well, stay safe. :-)

This is a great tip! I put my teabags in my compost but I'll be using some for seeds now!
