The 99-cent store in my neighborhood sells peat pots for seed growing at an unbeatable price.
A pack of 24 peat pots costs 99 cents!
Compare this price with Walmart’s online price for a set of 12 2.25-inch peat pots for $8.14!
You can start 24 summer vegetables for under a dollar!
- 5 tomato plants
- 5 peppers
- 3 eggplants
- 2 cucumbers
- 3 squash- different varieties
- 3 basil
- 2 oregano
- 1 mint
Think of the possibilities!
Sure, you can make your own seedling pots from newspaper or old toilet paper and paper towel rolls, but 4 cents for a ready made pot is a good bargain.
Peat pots are also handy for rooting cuttings because once roots grow, you can plant the peat pot in the ground and not disturb the young roots.
