Avoid spending too much money on pre-made seed starting kits and instead use materials that you have around your home, such as newspaper, brown paper bags or paper towel rolls. When your seedlings are ready to be transplanted to your garden, simply drop the entire biodegradable bundle into the ground, without disrupting the sensitive roots.
