If you have a backyard garden, you know one way to help expedite the growing process is to germinate seeds before planting them in the ground. One item that can be used to germinate seeds is used paper coffee filters. Mix potting soil with used coffee grinds and refill old filters with the mixture and seeds. The filters are a great container to use: They drain well and are durable. And when it’s ready to transplant, you can put the filter, mixture and sprouted seeds right into the earth.
