It's springtime in the Rockies and we're just itching to
plant our flowers. Try starting your seeds in cardboard egg cartons, or in these little, (biodegradable), newspaper rolls.
Using a cookie sheet, lay a foundation of small gravel, then
place your soil in the paper rolls, and plant. In six weeks
they'll be ready to transplant.
Wait until Mother's Day to put them in the garden though, so you'll be safe from those killer frosts!
I wouldn't mind receiving some little mint or herb or ivy starts like these as a Mother's Day present . . . so environmentally friendly!
Enjoy the beginning of springtime, wherever you are . . .
