A GARDENING expert has shared how people can grow seeds indoors at a super low cost.
The hack, shared on TikTok, can help people start their own garden no matter the environment inside their homes.
In the three part series, TikToker @thefrugalfarmgirl shared that buying seeds from the Dollar Tree or the clearance section in stores is a great way to save money – for as low as 25cents a pack.
Next, she suggests that people separate their seeds into two groups: seeds that can be planted inside and outdoors.
“Cucumbers, beets, onions, all that stuff I put right in the ground,” the content creator said of the outdoor varities.
One of the big expenses potential gardeners will buy for the indoor seeds is seed starting soil, which can be purchased at Walmart for $5.
Aspiring gardeners can use common household items to plant the seeds indoors, instead of buying new pots.
Items like used plastic cups, egg cartons, apple sauce, and yogurt containers are perfect for housing seeds.
After figuring out which containers to use, the content creator advises gardeners to find the place with the best lighting in their home.
Finding the best sunlit area is very important, according to the TikTok creator.
