    Comments about Capillary Matting, 3 Yards:

    I needed to set up a self watering seed starting system for 4 flats of tomatoes. The capillary matting was much less expensive that having to buy four seed starter kits with self watering mats. The capillary matting let me use the equipment I already have and to modify it to suit my needs. The matting hits all my major needs on cost, functionality, flexibility, and durability.

        I have used this product for a couple of years, and was dismayed this year, because the felt is not the same - much thinner. I don't know how it will work yet, but I am not happy that I ordered what I thought I had been buying, and got something different.

        I am using this in a planter that has a reservoir in the base to wick water up to the garden soil. So far so good as far as keeping the water pulled up into the soil.

        I was given a yes and a no to use with your old APS system by your garden experts. It worked just fine. I just cut to fit and proceeded as usual.

        I was amazed how quickly this material absorbed water, it was ready to use in minutes. Keeps my plant starts consistently moist, I had excellent germination of my vegetable seeds. Very happy with the product.

            Comments about Capillary Matting, 3 Yards:

            I start over 300 seeds a month for the local community gardens and the capillary mats that come with the seed starting kits will wear out after a year. This replacement is exactly what I needed to continue to produce transplants for the gardens. Glad they started carrying it and hope it continues.

              I start seedlings indoors under lights in March. I have used this product for years to water my transplants from the bottom. I line the large tray and the watering couldn't be easier. It would work great for seedlings too. I use APS systems for those.
