For all of you who want to start plants from seeds and later transplant them into your garden (or larger pots): A great way to start seeds is to use biodegradable containers. They have the advantage that you’ll avoid harming the roots when you would normally pull them from the soil and plant them at their new spot – you can instead just move the whole container, which will in time decompose. Voilà!
