      Comments about Paperpots:

      I started using paper pots many years ago for my tomato,pepper,broccoli and flower seeds. They were easy to set up, held moisture longer than peat pots and when it's time to plant, they go directly into the ground. For the past couple of years I couldn't find them, so when I saw them this year, I stocked up! Great product!

      These are ideal to pot up from APS

      Comments about Paperpots:

      I've used these for almost 15 years. The large size is perfect for potting up tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants from the APS-24 system.

      I bought the corrugated plastic trays to hold them and they've worn out, but I used one as a pattern and got some old corrugated plastic campaign signs and I'm back in business.

      My only complaint is that I can't seem to get these regularly and there doesn't seem to be anywhere else to purchase them! My favorite size is the large, yet I liked the medium as well which doesn't seem to be available anymore.

      I hope Gardeners' Supply is just out of these for the season and intends to keep carrying them!

        Comments about Paperpots:

        I have used paper pots for many years with great results. Through the years I have learned to cut the paper to create a smaller number of pots to fit in various size containers I need. Recycled deli and grocery fruit/food containers have been wonderful for creating smaller "flats" to contain the paper pots, and many come with lids, that are especially helpful during germination. Although you wind up wasting a 'row' of pots, cutting them makes the product much more useful for smaller numbers of plants. Separating the pots is easy when the plants larger, as long as the pots are wet.

            Comments about Paperpots:

            I have large rectangular tubs that each hold one grid. I use a little tape to hold one end while I pull the grid across to the other, which opens the honeycomb. I then fill with dampened germinating soil and plant my seeds. And there they stay until ready to put into the garden, at which time the pots pull apart easily, just as shown in the catalog photo - especially if I have watered them recently.

              I expected individual pots to put in expanded honeycomb then plant the pots. The picture indicates that's what I would get. Just a piece of honeycomb paper was a big dissappointment. Messy to separate the pots,wasted about half the paper.

              Comments about Paperpots:

              This is my go-to product for seed starting and growing on tiny seedlings, and has been for years. I split the paper honeycomb in two -- it's easy to pull apart if you moisten the strip with warm water first. Each half fills a standard plant tray. Then I fill the individual cells with seed starting or transplant mix. Then either sow seeds directly into the cells -- lettuces, Chinese greens, basil,nasturtiums and other flowers work well -- or transplant tiny seedlings from a germinator tray into the paper pots. Tiny filaments of petunias grow into nice healthy plants in the paperpots, ready to harden off for the garden and containers. The best part is there is no transplanting shock. The paper keeps each plant segregated, without suffocating them in plastic. Simply strip off the paper surround, and you've got a plant with a healthy batch of undisturbed roots to plant. The paper is compostable, so there are no plastic pots to wash or dispose of.

                Comments about Paperpots:

                I grow lots of bedding plants and garden vegetables every year using these. If I am growing enough to fill the whole unit, I fill them in a clear plastic storage box or tub ~ 6"-8" high. I have found some boxes that fit perfectly, and I fill the cells in the box and grow it in situ. I keep the boxes to use each year for this purpose. If I seed the whole unit and some plants grow faster, I just peel those cells out and put them in another container. If I don't want to use all 80 cells in a unit, I cut them (carefully) to fit a few cells into another smaller tub. Even rectangular deli tubs work well for 6-10 cells at a time, or maybe 18-24 in a clear shoebox type size. Watering is easy in the tub, no drips. No mess, no fuss. If humidity is low, I cover the boxes with plastic. Works great! If the cells are moist, they usually peel apart from one another with no problem. Even when larger transplants grow together, they separate and transplant well. [...]

                  I did not have a problem with the fact that the pots were connected, until I found that it wasn't as easy to separate them as was described. I also was not at all fond of the fact that there was no bottom.

                  I soaked these in water to seperate before planting with transplants. I use these inside a planting tray so I can carry them to the garden from my basement. I start everything in Feb. and March so my plants are ready to plant when the weather breaks.
