Additional Information

Exclusive | Seed Tapes: Precision Planting with No Waste, No Thinning

Seed Tapes are the perfect, no-waste way to plant where space really counts — in containers, raised beds, or small gardens. Each strip of biodegradable paper is embedded with perfectly spaced seeds; simply unroll into a planting furrow and cover. Planting is precise, there's little or no thinning needed, and the germination rate is outstanding. Seed Tapes are made by Suttons Seeds, one of England's most trusted growers, and we're offering some of their most reliable and rewarding vegetable varieties.

2009 was a tough year for gardeners in the Northeast: cold, windy, plagued by heavy rains and blight — not the best year to try a new product like these Seed Tapes in our test gardens. But, to our surprise, nearly 100 percent of the seeds germinated. Popular with English gardeners for years, Seed Tapes have made believers of us. This set of 4 Seed Tape includes three tapes each of Carrot (Amsterdam Forcing 3), Radish (French Breakfast), Lettuce (Webb's Wonderful) and Beet (Boltardy).

  • Save when you buy this set of 4 seed varieties
  • Seed tapes are a terrific way to plant small gardens and raised beds
  • Also ideal for mid-season succession planting between rows
  • Seeds are evenly spaced and embedded in biodegradable paper tape

Product Details

  • Biodegradable paper with embedded seeds

    Comments about Seed Tape, Set of 4:

    These seed tapes aren't bad, but they're also not a piece of cake to use. They're packaged in an almost toilet-paper-like covering, which is a little fiddly to separate from the roll.

    Still, for small seeds, I think there is less waste involved when using this tape than not. I wish there were more varieties available to choose from.

        Small seeds such as radishes, carrots and beets are so much easier to plant using the seed tape--no more 10 seeds in one place and none in another.When will lettuce seeds come this way????
