Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveR My grandson is thrilled!
I bought the greenhouse with my grandson. His Gran and I want to encourage his interest in gardening. We picked out a variety of vegetable and flower seeds and worked together to plant them. He's enjoyed watching the seeds sprout and grow. It's been educational and a nice project for all of us. Now it's about time to transplant.

The self watering is a joke. The water never leachs into the soil. I also cant seem to find any seed pellets that go with the kit for a second use. Over all i would suggest using a egg carton and a pan of water.

I purchased this Burpee seed starting tray at Home Depot. After CAREFULLY following instructions, the pellets did not only not expand in "seconds" to fill the tray, none of them expanded to fill the tray. A few expanded to resemble fat cigars stuck inside the tray, with space all around them. Despite pouring much more warm water than recommended, and waiting and waiting, it was clear they were not going to expand. I ended up having to break them up with a fork, and even then, the amount of dirt/peat only filled the individual cups about half way, so I had to add some potting soil to make them viable for planting. Not impressed!

This tray is the easiest I have used to start seedlings in my basement. Check water daily though I know it won't need to be refilled for at least ten days.

I bought one each of the Jiffy kit and the Burpee kit. The Jiffy one seems to be of higher quality, and costs $2 less. Its pellets also have the benefit of being wrapped in a light mesh making transplanting a little easier.

I was really excited about getting this kit. I wanted to get some seed started for my garden. Unfortunately, this kit was a disaster for me All I grew was a mold that killed a few seeds that were actually growing. It was a waste of my money

The clear plastic cover was warped and would not fit well. Otherwise it's a good kit. Please inspect contents before purchasing.
