Yogurt containers

Post  jmsieglaff on Sun 12 Jan 2014 - 11:03

Curious if any one uses yogurt containers for seedlings?

I start in cell packs and pot up into 3" square containers for my peppers and tomatoes.

These yogurt containers (eat one a day) measure ~3" tall (fillable depth) and 2" across, I'm thinking they're too small to be very useful.  Too big to start seeds and too small for potting up (because I don't want to pot up more than once).  Anyone use these for anything related to the garden?

See how Jimmy Cee uses them here:


I cut them up to use as plant markers.

Thanks!  Both good ideas, I'm always throwing them in the recycle can and thinking they could be used for the garden.  I use 1/2 gallon milk jug spray painted black and filled with water in my cold frame in the late winter/spring.

I used to get tons of the individual store brand ones and liked them for seed starters. The yoplait ones have a bit of a narrowing at the top that may cause root damage when removing the plant. I now buy the large containers, since we go through so much yogurt, and will be using those for up potting again this year.
