Additional Information

Rootrainer ™ Seed Starters Encourage Healthy Root Growth

  • Grooved growing cells promote healthy, downward root growth
  • Roots don't spiral, so seedlings transplant better than pot-bound seedlings
  • Growing cells hinge so it's easy to remove plants without disturbing roots

Rootrainer seed starters have grooved cells that promote downward root growth and discourage spiraling, yielding deep-rooted seedlings that transplant easily and adapt quickly to the garden. Cells are 1-1⁄2" square at the top, and they hinge so you can monitor root growth and remove plants without disturbing roots. Made from plastic; may be reused. The Deep Rootrainer has 32 cells with a holding frame; no waterproof tray or cover.

    Comments about : Rootrainer™, Deep:

    I have used these for over a decade, and have both the stronger ones that were initially made, and the cheaper ones, currently using a total of 10. I believe that the one's gardener's supply is selling may actually be the stronger ones. They are all completely worth it. The seedlings grow long strong roots, which preferentially grow along the outside of the pot. The transplants are far superior to other ways of starting, and take off easily once in the ground (no breaking up the root mass). Really deep roots. My root trainers have lasted many years, though there is some breaking of the sleeves. Even with some breakage, these are still re-usable; two halves can easily be fitted back together as they are held snuggly in the frame. Do expect some loss with time.

    I do not use the clear plastic trays as the roots would be too wet. I searched the internet and found (low) plastic trays that exactly fit the 4 tier green house shelves, so 3 root trainers fit neatly on each shelf!!!

    An awesome product and one of my favorite gardening things!

      Many of my friends told me their sweet peas in containers did not sprout. However, my root trainers are showing success!

          Comments about : Rootrainer™, Deep:

          This product was easy to set up and fill with soil. I like seed starting early and the Deep Rootrainer has plenty of room for a strong root system and means I don't have to transplant the seedlings into bigger pots before going into the garden. It's also a breeze to get the plants out without having to push and pull and possibly damage the roots.

          Comments about : Rootrainer™, Deep:

          Transplanting bare root seedlings started in Gardeners' Supply Germination mix or peat pots. When full of potting mix, the rack only holds 7 or the 8 "books," but you can get them in and out. So far, I have not lost a seedling of vegetables or milkweed on the light tray. Looks like they will be great to go to the garden when it warms up. Have bought another case for summer plants.
