Exclusive | Earth-Friendly, Self-Watering Fast Start® Seedstarter Ensures Success

  • Fast germination and robust seedling growth in a convenient self-watering growing system
  • Earth-friendly planting tray is made from a biodegradable cornstarch-based material
  • Heavy-duty reservoir is dishwasher-safe; reusable capillary mat is machine-washable

Starting plants from seed has never been easier! The culmination of four years of research and testing, our new Fast Start® Seedstarter represents a breakthrough in successful seedstarting. The new 24-cell planting tray is made from a revolutionary cornstarch-based material that offers the sturdiness of plastic but will biodegrade under landfill conditions — there‚Äôs no need to wash and sterilize at the end of the season because you use a fresh one each year. The rigid, molded plastic reservoir is dishwasher safe, leak-proof and will last for years. And the new, reusable capillary mat is machine washable. The Fast Start Seedstarter includes one each of the clear greenhouse cover, biodegradable planting tray, capillary mat, reservoir and platform.

  • Cornstarch-based PLA resin planting trays, molded plastic reservoir, platform and dome and polypropylene capillary mat
  • 14-3/4" L x 9-1/4" W x 5" H overall
  • 24, 2" square planting cells
  • Reservoir is dishwasher-safe
  • Capillary mat is machine-washable
  • Planting tray is biodegradable under landfill conditions
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

          Comments about Fast Start™ Seedstarter:

          I am using the seed starters under the "sun-lite grow lights". They fit in on the shelves perfectly and because they are mostly self watering, they make it really easy to start plants from seeds. I have over 200 plants almost ready to plant. Other planting containers would not have fit so nicely into the grow light stand, so I wouldn't have been able to start so many at one time. I would make this purchase again, but I don't think I will have to for years, because the packs feel pretty durable.

              Really a great product. Only minor issue is that I can't get the seedlings out without turning them upside down which required me to cut them out individually.

                Seeds start quickly; seedlings stay watered but not water logged; reusable, & tray is durable. I transplant seedlings to larger peat pots and continue to use the system to keep seedlings watered and fertilized. Trays are really durable!

                    I bought three of these sets for seed-starting. They are well-designed and constructed and work as advertised except for one major shortcoming: If used as designed, the dome does not reach the top of the tray, leaving about a one-inch or 1.5-inch gap, so moisture will escape more quickly. The solution is to put plastic wrap around the dome and the tray.

                        I've gotten hooked on these planting trays with capillary mats. Perfect for starting seeds! I'm using the included cell tray now; when that is no longer useful, I plan to use individual 3-4" pots on the tray so I can grow full-sized lettuce indoors.

                          It's the first of March...we've got 38" of snow sitting on the garden, and the wind chill is 24 degrees below zero. A little early to start planting the heirloom tomato seeds. But I'll surely let you know how it all worked out in a month!

                            I am using this to start my garden. I have it on the ledge in the bathroom. It is neat to see the plants coming up. It was easy to put together and plant. It has been easy to take care of and so light but not flimsy. In fact, it does not require much care but is great to watch.
