Creative Reuse: Toilet Paper Rolls = Seed Starts

Re-Nest today has a great little piece on seed starting with toilet paper rolls.  Any and all cardboard is a garden’s best friend, as it’s great fuel for worms and therefor creates great nutrients for the soil.  By starting your seedlings in a toilet paper roll you’re not only using something that otherwise gets thrown away, but also creating a food source for plants best friend: worms.

Keep in mind, though, that as the first commenter wonders the cardboard can stifle root growth so I’d suggest cutting it or just opening it before planting to make sure there’s continuous growth – one of the most important factors to take into account when transplanting seedlings.
