When gardening season rolls around, I love to find ways to reuse containers I already have, instead of buying more. Not only are seeds and plants an initial investment, but the containers are a whole other story. Luckily, most all of us can find ways to reuse containers for plants and herbs with a little creativity. Here are a few of my favorite ideas, but let me know if you have any too!
1. Yogurt Containers
You can easily use yogurt containers as one of the best ways to reuse containers for plants and herbs. All you need to do is simply punch a few holes in the bottom of any size container, and put in some soil, along with your seeds. This makes a great way to start off seedlings in your kitchen window before you’re reading to plant them in a bigger pot. Leave them here until they reach about 2 inches in height, then transfer to a bigger pot. Use the top of the yogurt container flipped upside down to place under the container for collecting water from drainage.
