Recycle for pots and containers

Even if you have a lot of gardening space, you may want to have some containers to use for starting seedlings or for having some tender plants close to the house for easy pickings.  Seedlings can be started in pots made out of newspaper.  These are sturdy enough to get things going but get fragile after a few weeks.  Great if you plan to pop them into the ground but not so great if you want to hold them over for several weeks, while the soil outside warms up.  You can make pots out of plastic containers, vitamin pill bottles, juice bottles, Milk bottles.

Be sure and thoroughly wash and disinfect the containers before using them.  Non waterproof containers can be made water proof by lining with a plastic bag.
