    Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

    For years I've used flimsy seed starters, with styrofoam parts. Managed to get a few years out of them but finally trashed/recycled these. NOW! This DEEP ROOT SEEDSTARTING SYSTEM is constructed of lasting material, and has a top high enough to allow sufficent growth before setting outdoors without the top for hardening off. Delighted. (And I bought these on sale, an added benefit!)

              Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

              My only complaint is that the cover is too tall for early seedling growth indors under lights: you can't get the light close enough & seedlings become leggy. If you can put the trays in sunlight, they're great. I'd love to see a shorter cover for early growth, and the present taller one to protect taller seedlings.

                  This seed starting system is great. It is sturdy and the pots are large. I have it under a grow light and my seedlings are growing well.
                  I made systems like this 30 years ago from trays, pots and plastic covered hardware cloth. I loved the way they worked then, as I love the way these work now. I am really happy to have someone one such a nice product that I didn't have to make myself, and the top on this one is much sturdier than those I made years ago.

                  Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

                  At first, I bought large sets of seed starters thinking it was cheaper per cell. Now, I realize that bigger cells and a tall dome allow for the plants to grow stronger before transplanting. Also, different seeds need different care, so several smaller seed starters is better. This is a good side and a nice sturdy plastic that will last long enough to justify the higher cost.
                  I'm using it for tomatoes, basil and other seeds that will need to stay indoors until it get warmer.

                    I am very impressed with this seed starting setup. It is so much better than ones I used last year from a local home and garden shop. This is a nice study setup with heavy-duty trays and cover. I expect it to last for many years so it's well worth the money spent.

                      The shells are an excellent size for starting plants. With the 3 1/2" size I don't have to repot the plants before transplanting outside. Love the water reservoir that is built in for continuous moisture but not too much.
                      I only wish it had a few more cells.

                        The wicking concept was appealing but the shallow water reservoir and short absorbing mat will cause me to make modificatons. I intend to use this to start seedlings and grow to transplant size. The tall dome should allow that.

                        The dome arrived smashaed and I will repair but better packaging would have prevented that. I know I could return it but consider that a waste of everybodies time when I can fix it with some transparent tape.

                            if the water level in the base comes up over the platform and wicking mat, the cells can get oversaturated and develop mold. I start over 70 varieties of tomatoes and two to three seeds per cell of each. Depth of cell means I can reduce my need to transplant seedlings by half.
