I recommend against that. When I planted in home made newspaper pots and put them in the garden "as is" I found the rood ball was restricted.Don't laugh out loud everyone but I tried my germination tests in cardboard toilet role tubs. the cardboard tubes acts as a wick and keeps the soil nice and moist and stops it drying out.they also act like root trainers. I will then plant on in a bigger pot tube an all.
I think I'll go the damp paper towel/plastic sandwich bag route. Oh yeah, I forgot to label the seeds I put in the jar so my first try is in the dust bin. (That's for all you Brits LOL)
Im goin with the jars this yearthe seedlings look better and I dont have to pull them off the PT. Im givein it anutter week before I start seed.I rember the 15th. of april bein nasty someyears. I ant pottin up 50 seedlings. Its unnecessary.
