Unusual but clever trick to start a seedling

Starting your plants indoors for their eventual outdoor transfer doesn’t have to mean buying little pots. And you don’t want to buy things you’ll only use once a year.

The next time you’ve used your lemons or grapefruits, don’t toss the rind way. They make the perfect spot for your seedling to start a new life?

With planting season fast approaching, why not try this clever trick?

Poke a hole in the bottom for drainage, put some soil in and your herbs and other small plants can be simply grown on the counter, then brought outside and planted whole in the ground.
