Exclusive | Our APS-40 Seedstarting Units Ensure Success

  • Insulated growing tray and greenhouse cover trap warmth and moisture to speed germination
  • Includes Pegboard, Planting Tray, Reservoir, Capillary Mat, and Greenhouse Cover
  • The APS-40 is best suited for starting vegetables and flowers that will be transplanted into the garden when seedlings are still small

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 40 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.

  • 40 1-1/2 X 2 -inch cells, each cell is 2 inches deep
  • Overall dimensions: 14-1/4" L x 9-3/4" W and 7- 1/4" high with clear cover.
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

Comments about APS 40:

I am in my 3rd year using these and own three. These have held up surprisingly well. My only wish is a larger size for propagating plants, although I just planting 120 catmint cuttings that seem to be doing great. Roots seem really strong when seeds are started in these.

    Comments about APS 40:

    This product worked about as well as all the other seed starting products that I have tried. The problem that I am having is adjusting the amount of water that the seedlings get. The directions with this device say if they feel too damp, then take the mat out of the water. Nobody has yet to make me understand what too wet or dry means. I've had several seedlings in the past damp off or die from not enough water. All of the seeds that I started with this system damped off.

      I started some Tom Thumb Baby Bibbs seeds in the APS40 about 3 weeks ago, and now I have a large crop of healthy, strong seedlings almost ready for transplanting to larger containers for an early spring crop on my deck.

        Comments about APS 40:

        I really like the ease of setup and use. Once established it may constantly used to start seeds of all types, keeping in mind that certain plants transfer better than others. I used it mostly for starting/establishing vining plants. not a good use for root plants like radishes, carrots potatoes. et al.

          Best if all seeds are of the same package because
          must uncover once germinated. Last for years when
          washed between uses.

                I used this product to start seeds last month. Works very well & easy to use. When it came time to transplant to bigger pots, the plants were easily dislodged from the styrofoam containers. So great I just ordered another one.
