Plastic containers with clear lids get a second life as mini greenhouses. Poke holes in bottom for drainage, fill with seed-starting mix then sow seeds, put lid on container and watch for seedlings. Once the seedlings have sprouted, REMOVE the lid or you'll steam them to death. Soon they'll be ready to transplant to their garden spaces.

Seed bombs! I gave these to my friends' kids and they loved the idea of being guerrilla gardeners!! :-) How to make seed bombs.

Best thrown just before a rainy spell to ensure germination
