Start your seedlings in Cardboard milk containers (Marty WARE)

I have a very valuable edition to our Newsletter today!

It’s all about raising seedlings.

Any type of seedlings really.

Before I direct you to the page I would like to provide a tip!

Start your seedlings in Cardboard milk containers.


Because these are recyclable.

They are inexpensive, you probably buy milk anyway!

They produce a nice long deep roots, which is vital for plant health.

You can poke a few holes in the sides, cut out the bottom and plant them straight into the ground or container with no shock to the roots what so ever!

I hope you enjoyed this tip.

Please now move onto the next part of the lesson!
