How to Plants Seeds Cheaply Using Milk Jugs and Toilet Paper Rolls


An easy way to plant your seeds indoors to have seedlings to put out in your garden, is to use milk jugs and TP or paper towel rolls.

Save your TP rolls and milk jugs.

Cut the rolls in half.  If you're using paper towel rolls, cut them about 3" long.

Using a serrated knife, cut the jug on three sides, just below the handle, leaving one side uncut.

Add your soil and seeds according to packet directions.

When you're ready, you can plant the whole tube without disturbing the seedling!

I did look into whether or not the tubes are safe to plant or if they have chemicals, etc.  From what I found, they are safe.

Happy Planting!
