Seed Starting

Seed Starting

Giving your seeds the very best chance to germinate and develop healthy foliage is an important first step. Most seeds should be started indoors before the last frost date in spring. Using these supplies will give you a good start to the garden season.

Plastic square plant pots for home gardeners and fresh market growers. Recommended for tomatoes, peppers, melons, cucumbers, herbs and most vegetables. With drainage holes. These square pots can be used individually, 10x20' flats or SPT550 trays. Purchase in sets of 8 or carton of 200. Top Outside (in.): 5.36 Bottom Outside (in.): 4.18 Depth (in.): 6.0

Cells can be separated into six-packs. 72-cell flats separate into 6-cell packs. With drainage holes. Compatible with any germination tray. Individual cell size: Width (in.): 1.5 Length (in.): 1.5 Depth (in.): 2.23

12 cell Fertilpots strips (19"L x 6 1/3"W x 3 1/8" D) are biodegradable wood fiber pots composed primarily of Spruce (Picea Abies) fibers and are manufactured without the use of glues or binders. Each cell is 3.3"L x 3.3"W x 3.3" D. These are not peat pots! Fertilpots are truly biodegradable and are intended to be planted directly in the ground or the next larger container. Unlike rice-hull pots, starch-based polymers, or 'biodegradable' plastics, Fertilpots do not require a composting situation to degrade. Because water, air, and roots will penetrate the walls of the fertilpot so easily, there is no need for drainage holes. The natural root structure that develops helps to ensure a successful transplant. No other container, biodegradable, compostable or plastic, can allow a more natural development of the plants' root structure. Fertilpot is excellent for native plant material that can often be sensitive to transplant. Because the plant is never removed from the fertilpot, there is never any transplant shock. Fertilpot has been proven very successful in the production of vegetables, grafted wine grapes, forestry stock, as well as a range of annual and perennial crops.
