Gardening: Seeds

garden seeds


Save money gardening by growing as many or your plants as possible from seeds.  Plants your seeds in empty egg containers filled with potting soil.  If you have a window with a southern exposure, you can start them early inside your house.

You can also use empty plastic containers outside.  Punch holes in the top for air, and you can put the top on and close them when it is cold outside.
