New & Exclusive | The Fastest and Best Seedstarter You Can Buy — 100% Germination Guaranteed!

  • Our best seed starting system ever!
  • Self-watering; takes the guesswork out of starting seeds
  • All-in-one, simple-to-use Kit ensures 100% germination
  • Dishwasher-safe so it's easy to clean

You’ll be amazed at how quickly seeds will grow in this convenient, self-watering system. Simply add water and the eco-friendly coconut coir pellets expand to fill each cell — no need to handle messy soil mix. You’re ready to plant! The biggest problem for home seed starting is over- or under-watering. We've solved it! Just fill the reservoir and plants get the water they need, when they need it. That’s worry-free watering!

This improved system, based on customer feedback, includes an extra-sturdy leakproof 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.

      Get a head start

      • Seed starting

      I bought four of these to start my seeds with after several years of utilizing starters from the "bargain store." Right off the bat, these trays have cells twice as wide and twice as many (I bought the 24 cell trays.) The footprint of the tray is naturally larger, however the larger cells have already paid off as my squash seedlings are growing like weeds. These trays should eliminate issues I had with seedlings running out of root room.

      The trays are a much heavier plastic than my previous ones and look like they will hold up to sanitizing in the dishwasher. The coir pellets were easy to use, however I plan to use regular seed starting mix next year. The capillary mat system keeps everything nice and moist which has been a problem in the past.

      Minor complaint: the plastic domes do not secure to the trays, rather they just rest on top. It should not be a problem as I don't intend to move them around prior to transplanting. All in all, an investment which looks to be a good one that should last a significant time.

      product did not work well

          Best Uses

            I used the product as suggested. I had a lower germination rate than I have ever had with any other technique. Seeds that were planted in different trays right next to these came up fine. Neat idea but something about it does not work.

                  I got this accidentally in a Gardners.com order (they gave it to me free). I will now be buying more. I had similar seeds in the cowpots (purchased here also). The cowpots were nice but molded and grew mushrooms. This seed trey is clean and quick.

                        I bought two of these to plant my heirloom tomato and pepper seeds. I had seedlings appear in less than a week after planting, and I've only needed to add more water twice in 3 weeks. I'm a busy mom of 4, so I needed something low-maintenance and this kit fit the bill. It was a little expensive for what it is, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to reuse it for many more years to come. My kids enjoyed helping me set it up, too.

                              I have to agree with the review by Parko/Boise, Idaho, 3/14/2014. Within weeks, seedlings started damping-off, and the coir pellet mix started to stink. Some cells were soaked/algae covered and others were bone dry...all within the same tray! I've been starting seeds for 30 years in the laundry room, this is the first year I've tried these trays and the first time I've had 50% loss. And, yes, I kept the water at the right level, etc. Went in tonight with traditional cellpacks/seed starting mix to try to transplant semi-survivors to salvage some hard-to-find/by-seed-only varieties/seedlings. Something is definitely wrong here, GS.

                                  The trays were sturdy and easy to use. I just used them yesterday to start some pepper plants and will use others to start my tomatoes. It makes watering the seeds and seedlings so easy. Am thinking of ordering more.( I ordered 5 this time.
                                  Great idea that they can be sterilized in the dish washer.

                                  I bought two, liking the heavy construction and dish washer safe feature. Unfortunately the coir pellet only expanded to fill half of the cell and absorbed too much moisture from the tray. All the pea seed rotted before germinating. The mixture even smelled rotten. See picture. The APS with Gardeners Supply Germinating Mix is on the right. Most of the seed germinated. All units were planted the same day with pea seed from the same pack. I plan to try the units again with the GS Germinating mix and hope for better luck.
