What Types of Containers Can I Use for Seed Sowing?

trudi_dJanuary 1, 2013


Seeds don't know what they're sown into, it is not necessary to use traditional containers manufactured for seed and plant uses.

I like to use containers with a depth of at least two inches soil so I won't have to water frequently. Wash recycled containers well, spritz with a weak solution of water and chorine bleach and let dry in full sun. If you are making a container from recycled plastic use only food-grade plastic for sowing vegetable, herb, or fruit seeds. Homemade containers need drainage. Add a drainage slit to the base about every four linear inches.
