Trays for Our Deep Root Seedstarting System

  • Long-lasting, reusable seedstarting trays
  • Deep cells encourage large, healthy root systems
  • Heavy, dishwasher-safe plastic is easy to clean for use year after year
  • Sized for use with the reservoir base of our Deep-Root Seedstarting System

The secret to growing stocky, vigorous seedlings that thrive when transplanted outdoors is a strong root mass. The tapered cells of these trays are 50% deeper than similar seed trays which means more room for root mass. This unbreakable tray is designed for using on the reservoir base of our Deep-Root Seedstarting System.

  • Easily rinses clean, dishwasher-safe
  • Trays are 13-7/8" L x 8-1/2" W
  • 15-Cell Tray cells measure 2-3/4" square x 3-1/2" D
  • 28-Cell Tray cells measure 2" square x 2-5/8" D
  • 40-Cell Tray cells measure 1-3/4" square x 2-1/2" D

        Comments about Deep-Root Seedstarting Trays:

        I've tried them all, I these are the BEST. Reusable indefinitely, big holes in bottom make transplanting easy, easy to transplant up from 40-cell trays to larger 28 or 15-cell sizes. Much faster growth after transplanting than any of the "plantables" like peat or cowpots, because roots are unimpeded (no waiting for pot to rot). Though they don't fit a "standard" seedling tray, three of them fit perfectly in a cheap boot tray from any big box store. An excellent investment.

          Comments about Deep-Root Seedstarting Trays:

          I purchased a couple of pink ones when they were on sale and was so impressed with them that I purchased more to use for years to come.
          My transplants developed much stronger root systems in these than in standard peat pots or the moo-pots. The large bottom holes make it easy to push them out for planting without as much damage.

          These are easy to clean and very sturdy. I expect them to last for many years of use.

            Comments about Deep-Root Seedstarting Trays:

            The low rating is because this product was not what I thought it was. I thought it was the standard size of a seed flat, but it's small, about the size of a sheet of legal size paper. I can't comment on depth because I don't have experience with other products, but it's not as deep as the six packs you buy flowers in. I would have returned it except for the postage. That said, you can plant in it; the trick will be getting the sprouted seeds out.

                  These are the greatest this I have ever used to start seeds of any type. I use them year round. I used the transplant pots the APS systems and grow plugs but these beat them all. Best part is that you can use any soil to fill them so it saves on the cost in the long run. Bottom watering with a large hole to push the plug out there are raised ridges to train the roots so most plants come out ready to grow with-out a tangle.

                              For any seeds that I think may need special care -- in other words, most that I grow -- I count on the deep-root seedstarting system and these trays, which are still going strong after at least fifteen uses. I would agree with another reviewer that the 15-cell trays that come with the system are great for some plants but wholly too much room for others; I found that by picking up some 28-cell and 40-cell trays to tailor to each species' habit I can get the same fabulous results for every plant I start.
