Other Starting Methods (5 of 13)

Planting in plastic cell-packs is a handy way to start seeds, but there are lots of good alternatives. Peat pellets are a favorite with many folks. You drop the pellets in water and let them soak for 10 or 15 minutes. They absorb the water and expand into individual planting pots that are held together by a fine biodegradable mesh. You then plant the seeds in the pot and later place the seedling -- pot and all -- directly into the soil.
