There are so many seed starting kits one can buy. Some have the plastic trays with covers, just the little pots or some come with the peat pellets, just add water, fluff and plant. Yet there are ways to start your seeds without running to the gardening supply store. With a bit of creativity and time you can make your own seed starting kits with recyclables. You can use: Newspaper Toilet paper rolls Tin cans/ plastic bottles Pastry or strawberry containers Egg cartons and egg shells Here is what a mini strawberry seed starting garden looks like: I am going to try starting my seedlings in egg shells. I love this idea because the shell helps feed the seedling and once you are ready to plant, you plant the whole thing . I found this on Garden Betty. You could probably use normal dirt instead of seed starting mix.
