Additional Information

Exclusive | Easy-Care, Earth-Friendly Seed Starting Kit — 100% Germination Guaranteed!

  • Seed starting success starts here!
  • Self-watering; prevents over- and under-watering
  • Dishwasher-safe so it's easy to clean between uses
  • Made from heavy-duty, recycled plastic

You’ll be amazed at how fast and healthy your seedlings grow. We’ve solved the challenges of over- or under-watering with the no-fail self-watering feature. Simply fill the reservoir and plants get the water they need, when they need it. That’s worry-free watering! Forget flimsy, single-use look-alike seed starting kits; our heavy-duty system is reusable, again and again. It includes an extra-sturdy leak-proof reservoir, platform and planting cell tray that are all dishwasher-safe, making them easy to clean and sterilize between uses. And the capillary mat, which delivers moisture as seedlings need it, can be used over and over; simply hand wash between uses. A clear germination cover maintains proper humidity while the seeds are germinating. The support platform that holds the planting cells doubles as a seedling ejector. All at an unbeatable price! We recommend using our Organic Seed Starting Mix, sold separately.

Total disaster

By Long-time Gardener

from Avon, CT

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Can't get seedlings out without damage

Best Uses

  • Throw in trash

Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

I have used the APS kits for years...with consistently great results. However, the new "Growease" kit is a total disaster. Bottom line: it is so poorly designed that it is impossible to get your seedlings out of the tray without doing serious damage to them. The only way I could get them out was to use a spoon as a mini-trowel and dig them out. I am surprised and appalled that Gardeners Supply is selling such a poorly designed product to its customers.

These Are Perfect

By Vic

from Iowa

Verified Buyer

Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

I used these for seed starting under fluorescent tubes. They're the perfect size to fit under the lights so you can lower it to 3" above the seedlings and all the light is directed to all the plants. The perfect width.

      Harvest earlier by starting seeds indoors

      By Kentucky backyard gardener

      from Louisville, Kentucky

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Can be washed in the dishwasher
      • Made of recycled materials
      • Prevents over-/under-watering
      • Reusable
      • Self-watering
      • Sturdy

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Indoors for seed-starting
        • In greenhouse for hardening-off plants

        Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

        I like that this is made from post-consumer recycled materials and that it is reusable. I like that it can be cleaned in the dishwasher. I very much appreciate that it is sturdy and that it has a wicking system to prevent over- or under-watering tender seedlings. This is a great way to get a jump on the growing season by starting seeds indoors!

        Worked great!

        Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

        When I've tried to start seeds in the past, I occasionally forgot to check moisture levels and the soil dried out too much. With this set up, I didn't need to add water for almost 3 weeks and all of my seeds sprouted and are doing well.

        I love them!!! Going out of town is easy no need for the house sitter to water my plants. I can reuse them next year.

        Awful replacement for APS System

        By Sad in C-ville

        from Charlottesville, VA

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

        If this is a substitute for the APS system, forget it. I would hope that someone at Gardener's Supply would have tested the ability to easily (without trauma to the plant) remove seedlings from the cells. The platform does not work to help eject the cells, it only pokes a little hole in the bottom of them. You have to dig them out and in 40 years of gardening, I've never calculated that I would lose 40% of the seedlings I just tried to transplant into larger containers. We start seeds because they are varieties you won't find in any store. Since I've used it I can't return it so I am trashing it. Please test your products through all stages before selling them

        Perfect fit for my compact 2-tier Sun lite garden. I will probably purchase more for next year. Reusable is a plus.

        By Slackmomma

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Keeps plants evenly watered
        • Reuseable

        Cons

        • Hard to add water to the base

        Best Uses

          Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

          This is the best seed starting system around, plants come out healthy and ready for the garden. Getting water into the tray once the pods are full is tricky, easier to just water the plants
