Gardening Greats: Cardboard seed tubes for easy veggie growing
These past two weeks we have shown you some clever ways to get your home garden going- But it isn’t always that easy, right?! This week we have an easy and green way to start your seeds inside! To start, all you need to do is save either toilet paper (6-8) or paper towel (3-4) tubes. Once you have enough tubes follow the instructions below to start your garden!

Inside Instructions: Cut the (toilet paper or paper towel) tubes into 2 in. lengths and set them in a waterproof tray. Fill the tubes with soil and plant your seeds (remember the can be seeds from the fruits and veggies you have in your kitchen). Place in sunlight, water and let grow.

Outside Instructions: When the seedlings are ready to move to the garden, plant them right in their cardboard tube. The cardboard will decompose. Be sure to keep the tube below the soil surface, so it doesn’t wick moisture away from the roots.
