I’ve talked about using an egg shell to start seeds for the garden but I also like this idea from You Grow Girl: using a toilet paper roll as a seed starter. You fold down the ends of the tube, fill it with moistened soil, and plant the seed.
This is timely because I just planted a bunch of seeds indoors to transplant to the garden later this month. I used pots, but the advantage of using the the toilet paper roll method is that there’s no chance of damaging the seedling’s roots. When it comes time to plant, you put the whole thing right into the ground. Like the eggshell, the cardboard roll will break down as the seed matures. [Re-Nest]
