Starter Pots for the Garden

Do you go out and buy those flimsy plastic starter pots? Or even the more spendy biodegradable kind or terracotta? Why not save time and money by using something you have already? Tin cans! Most 15oz cans are just the right height and width to plant your starts in before transferring them to the ground. Just poke drainage holes in the bottom of the can, and go to town! These "pots" won't shatter if dropped, crumble when overly wet, or split apart after one use. If you do not wish to save and reuse them, just rinse and recycle! Your plants will love it. Your pocketbook will love it. And the environment will love it. Happy planting!
