Yogurt Cups for New Plants


What do you do with your empty yogurt cups? I’ve found that by collecting them over the year (yes I do eat a lot of yogurt), I have some perfect container for new plants. I just burn 3 holes in the bottom of each cup with a hot screwdriver (make sure the fumes go downwind), and you’ve got a perfect size pot for a new plant. In this picture I have 250 new milkweed seedlings.

How do you use recycling in your garden?

    I also reuse my yogurt cups for starting new plants. I’ll also save my paper cups from fast food restaurants to use for growing larger plants.
