Great Info! I love to recycle.
TP rolls are great for keeping your extention cords etc. under control in a drawer too. Gift wrap rolls are great for sword fights with the kids. LOL

I have been using the two liter bottles as mini greenhouses for years.

I love to share plants but don't care to give away my nice pots so I use gallon milk jugs. Just cut the top off & poke a few holes in the bottoms. If you cut it right you can use the top as a scoop too.
Who plants a seed beneath the sod and waits to see believes in God.

Yep, the TP and paper towel rolls are great, especially for those plants like Morning Glory that do not like to have their roots disturbed. Of course, I used a tall one since it gets long roots quickly.

You can also use the egg containers that are made of recycled material. Just cut them apart before potting.
