Ideas for cheap seed starting trays
Make you own seed starting tray by recycling aluminum tray, when ever you use aluminum tray and you are done with them, instead of throwing them away, clean the trays and store them so that at the beginning of the growing season you can use the trays to start your seeds
Make your own seed starting container
All you need to do is get the aluminum tray, punch a few holes at the bottom or close to the bottom for drainage (number of holes depend on the size of the tray), I will suggest between 6 and 12 holes should be enough.
Fill the aluminum tray (half full or 2/3 full) with your seed starter mix or soil
Plant your seeds per the seed package instructions,
water the tray so the the seeds and seed starting mix is moisten or soaked, remember with the holes at the bottom of the tray all excess water will drain out of the tray.
put the tray in warm area in you house, greenhouse or outside.
Tip: To fasten the growing time I put the whole tray in a plastic bag so that it maintains the heat and moisture. once the seeds germinate, you can now transplant them.
