Love it Love it Love it!!! This is by far the best seed starting kit I've ever tried. I've tried several and have had decent results, but this is the best kit so far in that it is self watering, ventilated properly, and has all the requirements for a good seeding result.
Anyone who has seen my blog knows that I've been starting seeds at work so we can all enjoy having a good garden this year. I decided to go out and buy some seed starter kits-I saw this one and gave it a try. Boy am I glad I did! The seedlings started coming up in 4 DAYS!! It was super fast-I don't know what they spike their peat pellets with, but it sure works well! I now have about 150 seedlings-some almost ready to plant-that I've had to repot in some cases because the results were just that good.
This kit comes with a base, a clear top for the greenhouse effect, a black shelf for the mini pots to sit on, the tray of mini pots, and a mat that you put in between the tray and the shelf. The mat hangs down low enough to touch the bottom of the base. You keep the base soaked with quite a bit of water and the mat draws the water up to water the seedlings from the underside-the way they should be watered for best results anyway. The seedlings never dry out (as long as you keep the base filled), and you only have to add water about once every 2 or 3 days. It's super easy to take care of and the results are amazing. Any amateur gardener (or the seasoned ones too!!) will love this seeding set! Worth the extra cost! Spend the money and get results!!
