5 Favorites: Planting Pots for Starting Seeds Indoors

November 13, 2012

With winter approaching, our thoughts turn to sprouting seeds indoors, where it’s warm and dry and heartening to see something—anything—growing. Plant them in biodegradable pots you can later transplant directly to the garden. Here are some of our favorites:

Above: An Heirloom Herb Seed Kit comes with vials of seeds, potting soil, and biodegradable paper pots; $49.95 from Williams-Sonoma Agrarian.

Above: A pack of ten biodegradable Coir Starter Pots are £4 from Hen and Hammock. When the seedling is ready to move to the garden, plant the whole pot in the ground.

Above: Use a Paper Potter to make seed-starter pots from old newspaper; £9.90 from Hen and Hammock.

Above: Cow Pots, developed by two Connecticut farmers as an environmentally friendly way to re-use manure, are odorless and biodegradable. Made of dried manure composted with natural fibers, a package of 12 3-inch pots is $7.95 from Veseys.

Above: Plant seeds in coir pellets; after five or six weeks, transplant directly to the garden. A 20-pellet Fiber Grow Greenhouse Kit, which also comes with a reusable tray and dome cover, is $6.49 from Grow Organic.
