Repurposing Plastic Water Bottles For Seed Starting

It’s probably no surprise that plastic water bottles make perfect seed starting containers-if you want to take the time. They come in all different sizes.

You can also keep the upper part of the bottle to create a mini greenhouse. Just unscrew the cap if it is getting to moist or hot, or take it off altogether and/or use as a little scooper. Be careful not to cut yourself on the plastic edges…

Last night I cut the bottles and created the drainage. We planted five different varieties of basil this afternoon from seeds we purchased at Renee’s Garden.

Is it really worth the time? Maybe. Maybe not! But there you go.

Enjoy!
