Steer clear of those expensive seed starter pots and use egg cartons. The carton, paper or foam, can be used to start seeds. The wells aren't very deep, so you have to keep that in mind when starting your seeds, but they work really well with small sunflowers, herbs, tomato seeds, etc. When you are ready to transplant your seedlings into the garden, it is easy to just peel away the carton, protecting the delicate seedlings from being yanked from a regular pot. You can also cut the paper egg carton into separate cups and just plant the seedling, paper cup and all.
