Your extra plants make great gifts for gardening friends. Plants like berries and herbs often multiply by making little baby plants around the big plant like these are strawberry plants. When you sow seedlings for your garden, you can always sow a few extra to give away as gifts.
Origami newspaper pots
Origami newspaper pots are the perfect containers for gifts of seedlings. They are as easy to make as folding a paper jet. Easy instructions here. Fill your newspaper pots with good soil and plant the seeds or small plants directly in the newspaper pot. Newspaper is biodegradable so the whole pot can be planted in your vegetable bed. Eventually the paper will become part of the soil.
