Those black garden nursery flats are pretty handy to start seeds in, but did you know you can use just about any container with drainage? You know, reduce, reuse, recycle!
If you’re creative and/or resourceful, the options are endless. You can use:
Milk or juice cartons
Since they don’t come with lids this is about the only good way I can think of to reuse them.
Rolled up newspaper
(avoid colored ink)
Paper or plastic cups
Clear plastic containers or deli trays
An Olive Oil Can
Or even the egg shells themselves!
Keep in mind that both egg cartons and eggshells are quite small. They work ok for starting tiny plants in, but the seedlings will definitely need to be transplanted very soon.
