There are many ways to start seedlings for your garden. Most people buy commercial pots to plant their seeds in, but there is a cheaper, better way.
Bio-pots are the best method to get your tender seedlings safely into the ground.
This is because you do not need to transplant them, as the pot simply biodegrades. Just stick the bio-pot directly into the soil and bury it—no need to transplant.
This method limits transplant shock the plant ordinarily goes through.
I have seen many different types of bio-pots: made from recycled cardboard, toilet paper rolls, and ones you can purchase from your garden center.
However, I personally like to use newspaper and fold a little box. For one, newspaper is easy to come by; two, you don’t need to buy more plastic pots; and three, the little boxes are quick and easy to make, and remind me of cheerful little noodle boxes.
Being square, these bio-boxes can be easily packed in close, saving space. After planting your seeds in your bio-boxes, keep them in a sheltered and sunny position until the seedlings are established. They are amazingly strong, and hold up to watering well.
You can also purchase commercial paper pot makers from Amazon that make round pots from newspaper. Happy planting!
