It is time to turn our thoughts toward the spring planting season. Savvy gardeners like to start their seeds for indoors to get ahead of the game and save a few bucks too! These easy DIY Faux Peat Pots for Indoor Seed Starting will cost you zero and they’re very easy to make.
You need to know which Plant Hardiness Zone you live in. This USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map will help you find it.
Once you have decided exactly which seeds to start indoors and determined a good start date for your seeds based on your planting zone, you will enjoy some of these frugal ideas for seed starting. Starter kits are available in home and garden stores but those can be expensive. The goal with growing our own is to keep more money in our pockets, right! Here are a couple of neat faux peat pot ideas you can make yourself from compostable material you already have in your home. The only purchase you will need to make is for starting soil and the seeds. If you have saved seeds from last years plants, then all you will be purchasing is the seed starting soil!
These faux peat pots are super easy to make and 100% compostable. You can plant them straight into the ground in the spring. This is how I did it.
