5 things to look for in a quality seed tray
- Good Drainage
Make sure your seedling tray has good drainage so your seeds don’t rot. There should be holes at the bottom of each cell.
- The Substrate
The soil or plugs should have good water retention qualities and be porous for vigorous root growth.
- Easy Transplanting
You should be able to easily stick your finger under the seedling cell and pop up the seedling when you are ready to transplant.
- Convenient Transporting
A seed kit that comes with a sturdy bottom tray makes it easy to move your seeds from place to place.
A reusable seed starter is always best for you pocket book and the environment!
