Use Citrus Peels To Start Your Seedlings

My Roman Apartment

So you've pledged to buy nothing new for an entire year, like the folks at My Roman Apartment, but you need to start your seedlings? You could use toilet paper tubes, but how about putting kitchen scraps to use instead?With the addition of a small drainage hole in the bottom of the peel, these lemons are a great start for new seeds over at My Roman Apartment. I mentioned last week that this can be done in small jars with clippings right from your own home. There's no reason a bowl full of lemons stuffed with tiny plants wouldn't also work.

The best part about this great smelling idea is that the peel can get planted along with the seedling. No muss, no fuss! You can read more on the pledge to not buy anything new for a year over at My Roman Apartment.
