Comments about Self-Watering Tray:

I am using my grow bags with the watering trays for growing vegetables and fruits on my patio. They have been so great. I did most of the plants as direct sow seeds and they sprouted without me having to worry about it. I check the trays every couple of days to make sure they have water and that's it. I did accidentally squirt the inner liner with a higher pressure hose and it removed some of it, but caught the error and the liner is still working.

      Comments about Self-Watering Tray:

      I have been using these trays for seed starting inside. They work very well. I read a few of the reviews. The only bad reviews were from people who just "didn't get it". They said the design was bad because the mat covered the hole where you add water. It doesn't take much thought to figure out that you just cut a hole in the mat to match the hole in the tray. The only problem I have had was the mold growing on the mats. I called Gardeners Supply and talked to a "tough garden questions" person. He recommended adding a fungicide like Serenade (which I fortunately already had) to the water. Although that doesn't get rid of 100% of the mold, it does help considerably.

        Comments about Self-Watering Tray:

        I'm a weekend gardener and watering during the week when I'm away is my biggest issue. I found these trays 6 years ago, and have bought more every year. They are far sturdier than the standard trays. I use them both indoors to start seeds, and outdoors to' 'hold' plants and seedlings until planting. I also have an outdoor covered stand I use as a cold frame, and use these trays there as well. They seem indestructible. I cut a small hole in the matting over the fill opening, and use a large funnel when I fill the tray indoors-- no spilling. I

        I've been away as long as 2 weeks and when I get back, everything is fine and growing well.

        At the end of the season I clean everything and put it away. Occasionally I have bought replacement matting, it comes in a sheet large enough for a few trays. I also use the matting under house plants in other contains.

        This is my first attempt at growing berries. I purchased this so I could go out of town and not have to worry about whether my blueberry bushes and strawberries were getting enough water while I was gone. So far all my berries are happy and blooming.

            I purchased 3 of these trays last year and I liked them so well I ordered more this year. I used these under some grow pots and they worked well keeping them watered. It encourages the roots to go down to obtain the water. They helped keep the plants moist without them standing in water. The only problem I encountered was filling them-you need to water them at a corner and you need to do it slowly or the water goes out of container. It would be nice if they had a large bowed out area for watering.

                I use it to grow seedlings till there ready to be planted outside. Works great, keeps plants watered. Only needs refilling about once a week. I put it in a wagon so I can roll it outside to harden off the plants. Gardeners Supply needs to sell the wicking mats separate, after a few years the mat starts to deteriate, then you have to buy the whole assembly.
