Picture of How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Planter
I love growing plants and have been ever since I was little. My dad used to always make these planters to sprout seeds indoors, then plant them in our garden. They are biodegradable and cheap, seeing as they are composed of everyday objects.

Step 1: Equipment

Cut the water bottle at the bottom. This will catch the excess water left over when you water your seedling.

Step 4: Put the Dirt in the Tube
