How to Turn Toilet Paper Rolls & Egg Cartons Into Seed Starters

Don't these look wonderful? It looks like potting soil has no problem staying put in the seed starter pots. Also, no worries if you're feeling inspired in the home improvement department and don't have empty toilet paper rolls right now.

You can also use egg cartons! They work just as great as toilet paper. Plant seeds in each tray, and set your carton by a windowsill. Your indoor houseplants will thrive all season long. Some gardeners even like to use old yogurt cups.

There are so many things you can use for seed starters yall. Get creative. COVID-19 is keeping us indoors, but we still have indoor gardening to keep us feeling happy and busy.
