Exclusive | Our APS-24 Units Ensure Seedstarting Success

  • All-in-one seedstarting system offers self-watering convenience
  • Includes Pegboard, Planting Tray, Reservoir, Capillary Mat, and Greenhouse Cover
  • The larger 2" x 2" cells of this APS-24 are best suited for fast-growing seedlings, such as tomatoes, peppers and marigolds

This all-in-one unit ensures steady supply of water for seedlings. Just keep the reservoir filled and the soil will remain perfectly moist. The APS 24 ensures sturdy, healthy transplants that will thrive in your garden. The insulated growing tray and greenhouse cover trap warmth and moisture to speed germination. The capillary matting and reservoir let seedlings help themselves to water as they need it, even if you're away. Seedlings pop right out of the tray for planting, which prevents root damage and transplant shock. We recommend our Germinating Mix. Replacement Parts are available.

  • 24 2" x 2" deep square cells
  • Overall dimensions: 14-1/4" L x 9-3/4" W and 7-1/4" high with clear cover
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    I would not recommend this product, go with this one instead (2" Self-Watering Transplant Pots, Set of 40 Item # 33-859)

    Much better solution!

    Comments about APS 24:

    I haven't had a chance to use this, just inspect the elements. It seems cheaply made, as others have said, but I suspect it will work well for my seedlings. I'm sure it will do great for this year, I just don't know if it will last for more than one year.

    A good way to start seeds

      Comments about APS 24:

      The instructions that came with the set could not be clearer. We planted tomato and pepper seeds a couple of weeks ago nearly all of which have sprouted. With other seed starters we've used in the past we have had to water every day but so far have only had to water a couple of times. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that I ordered the 2" cells hoping I would be able to plant the seedlings directly into our self-watering planters but at this point it seems likely that we will need an in-between step as I'm not sure these plants will be large and strong enough to plant directly.

        I purchased my APS seed starter systems from Gardener's Supply in about 1987 and have used them almost every year since then. I've had to replace the clear plastic tops on most of them and last year replaced a couple of the capilary mats. Over the years I've popped off two or three of the pegs, but they were easily glued back on. These things are awesome and with care will last forever!

              This unit serves me very well for starting seeds in my kitchen window. I've used it every early spring for eight or more years now.

              Comments about APS 24:

              The base tray is too weak. Originally, the base was supported by a foam outer tray. That was eliminated. The black plastic water tray needs to be made of thicker material.

              The top foam tray is difficult to clean for reuse. If floats so avidly, it will break if you try to hold it underwater for sterilization. I would prefer a top tray without dividers. I cut mine out (difficult to do). This works better for germinating a variety of seeds, that germinate at different times (only in fairy tales and Garden Supply catalogs do all the seeds germinate, and at the same time).

              The best part is the watering system (tray/cloth wick), which works well and keeps the seeds consistantly moist for weeks on a fill.

              I lift the germinated seeds from the soil mix with a pair of slats (cut from a vinyl narrow venetian blind), and insert them into 2" square "tree-band" pots for growing on.

                Recently took a power gardening class through my local school district and this product was recommended and demonstrated by the instructor. I honestly thought it was pricey until I bought it and tried it.

                I did my own "test" using this product in comparison to the normal starting trays and other starting mix. The difference was AMAZING.

                I will never use the junk from the local garden stores again. This product is by FAR superior all the way around.

                Your seeds will start faster, be healthier, and the maintenance is less! What more could you ask?

                I LOVE this product!
