pick a pack of peppers

Starting the seeds of flowers or veggies indoors in early spring is a great way to get a lot of plants for not much money. Before you know it, they’re large enough to pot up and begin to harden them off outdoors.

Here’s a tip to make moving the seedlings a lot easier. Slide the pots into cardboard four- or six-pack bottle holders. The holders have handles, so they’re easy to carry, either to move the seedlings or to share them with friends. And the holders keep the pots from tipping over as they do if they’re just set in a tray.
