So much fun!
from Long Beach, CA
Having so much fun watching my zinnia, tomato and pepper seeds sprout in this kit. I put the kit beneath my kitchen under-cabinet lighting, and the seeds came up VERY quickly. Zinnias sprouted within 48 hours! I also put the kit in natural light from the window, but the cabinet lighting really seemed to move things along. After seedlings came up, I moved the kit outdoors in the afternoons and then back under the lights in the evening; lights off at night. Tip: Transplant your vegetable seedlings to larger containers and keep indoors for a few weeks in sunlight. The seedlings I planted outside are struggling, while the ones I left inside are thriving. Will plant outdoors when weather warms up a bit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Works very well
By Silver fox

I have used these 12 cell and the 24 cell seed starting kits for several years now. They are easy to clean, store and reuse. I use the germination mix and achieve almost 100% success. One con is that the water gage used in the 24 cell kit will not fit in the 12 cell.
Perfect for Seedlings

Well-made starter kit. Easy to set up and withstands animal meddling.
Good way to start

In my part of the country growing anything can be hard. This starter kit produced seedlings in good time and it doesn't take up much space, it fit nicely in my window sill.Set up is easy and maintenace in minimal.
Good for a beginner
from St. Louis
For what you get, these were a bit pricey. I found the others on this site to be a bit more reliable. Having said all of that, they worked and did what they were supposed to do. Overall, I would be something from Gardeners in this genre again. I just found that for my needs, I liked the larger trays better.However, this size/shape works well in the trays and is easy to work with in terms of weight and so on. I still have mine from last year and will use it again.
Easy to use, has worked well so far.
from Los Angeles, CA
I found this product very easy to use and had better success with it than the previous seedstarting kit I had used. I really like the wicking watering system as watering seedlings is hard for me to get right. I also like how everything is self-contained, so once you get the seeds planted, there is no mess or spills. So far I have started broccoli and snapdragons with success. The only failure I had was with some onions, although I suspect they may have needed more time than was specified.

Must properly position wicking fabric.
The seedstarting kit is great with a few exceptions. The APS kit contains two flats made of styrofoam - if you're not too careful, these styrofoam flats will break. The provided soil was excellent and provided more than enough for the given two flats.
Great Starter Set

This is the first time I've tried starting plants from seeds. The directions for the starter set are very clear and it is easy to assemble. The plants come up so fast I already have to transplant to larger containers.
