    A Good High Volume Seed Starting System

    Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

    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.

    Cover was slightly scratched on each one ordered and was surprising considering the expense. We have tried and it works very well and was easy to set up. We would have purchased 2 more but could not afford at this price.

    These starter kits are great. Better than anything I have ever used. You do not have to worry about watering. I have 4 of them. They are really heavy duty construction. You have vents at the top to control heat. They are awesome.

    Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

    I actually bought this kit a year ago and wanted to try it out before I did a review. Finally a seed starting kit I can use over and over. The cells are nice deep so the plant roots have enough room to grow. Would be nice if it came with an extra mat.

          Be very careful with what you buy. I purchased Deep Root Seedstarting System, but was disappointed in when I received it. I called to return and all they said was go to Fed-ex. I went to the US Postal package and the cheapest rate was $34.00 the price of one of the seedstarters. This will be the last time I use Gardners.

              This product is easy to set up and small enough for starting seeds in smaller places. It fits perfectly under my 2' grow light and is attractive enough to leave out. The dome lid contains the warmth and moisture early on and the watering system is fail-proof! I have a hard time remembering to water indoor plants and seeds so this is ideal for me! Just fill the water reservoir and the kit does the rest. My seeds have sprouted already on day 3.

                I am starting my tomatoes and green peppers in the seed starter. Glad I bought 2! All seeds coming up, plenty of room for deep roots.

                Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

                This is a great seed starter. I wish you could add water without removing the lid (like the APS) seed starters. That is my main complaint, it is also a little spendy. I like that this product is sturdy and long lasting, and that the lid is tall. I live in a cold climate and I have to start seedlings indoors quite early. You never know when it will stop snowing and freezing outside, so sometimes my seedlings get pretty big before I can put them outside, so I like the tall lid for that reason.

                I use cowpots in this system instead of the plastic cells that come with it - less shock to the plants, easier to translplant. Another reason that I like the tall lid.
