Seed starting trays: If you plan to start some of your seeds indoors, these trays come in handy. Or, you can try using things you have around the house, like toilet paper rolls, newspapers, or even egg shells. You will need to keep them in a sunny spot, which is challenging, especially in colder, snowy climates, so consider purchasing a grow light. You can also purchase starter plants from the garden center when you are ready to plant if you don’t want to start your own seeds.
Plant supports:Many plants grow taller than their ability to support themselves— especially in an elevated garden like an Eco Garden. When plants do not have to compete for nutrients or moisture, you can get some truly amazing height, and this can stress your plants. Stakes, cages, or other support mechanisms can add strength to your amazing growth plants.
