Life skills - seed planting

Learn how to make toilet paper rolls into seed planters here. It's high time for indoor spring planting, and/or these might be handy for rooting the cuttings taken from houseplants.

Basically, you cut the toilet roll in half, cut four slits in one end and fold those tabs in to make the bottom, fill them with soil and set them in a tray. When the sprout or cutting is ready for transplanting, carefully tear the cardboard away, or just undo the tabs on the bottom, and put it in the ground (or a bigger pot).
