  • Start from seed and save
  • Seed is not included

How many weeks can seedings stay in this system?

Asked by Duration February 3, 2021

Answer

Thank you for your question. In effort not to be vague it really depends on the variety you are growing and days to germ. Rule of thumb is when starting seed indoors, in any kit, you want to start approximately 8-10 weeks before your average last frost date or when you plan to transplant into the garden. In regards to your average last frost date you can do a search for your zip code or city and it should come up. If by chance your not able to transplant as planned, on most varieties you can leave in kit for another couple of weeks or longer. During this time, after 12 weeks, if you start seeing roots come to the top of the soil then it's best to transplant into garden or a large peat pot for example. Most stores carry the Jiffy 4" Round Peat Pot or sku 1001054321 to aid in this. If you do move to a peat pot you can plant pot and all into the soil with no harm to the roots and plant. In hopes this helps and if we can be of further assistance don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at 508.285.5800 and our best to you this season.

Once the seeds germinate and grow. How do you recommend to remove it from the tray?

Answers

As long as your soil isn’t too wet you should be able to pop them out from the bottom.

Is this intended as reusable or one season?

Are there holes in the bottom of the hexagons?

well, if there is a water tray under the seed tray than it would wick up from the water tray...but, I have only seen this with other trays not this particular product...I would think that someone else could answer that has actually purchased this tray from HomeDepot

Does this kit come with the Jiffy soil? If so, how many quarts? Also, how many quarts of soil are...

Asked by Photogenesis April 14, 2020

Answers

No soil is included. I bought a small bag of potting soil as regular soil is not recommended. I used some peat pellets in some hexagons, but the potting soil did better and did not dry out as quickly. The hexagons are fairly small, so my guess would be 1-2 quarts of soil.

Watering

Asked by Sal July 12, 2019

Answers

I make a 75/25 blend of garden soil and peat moss. Stir it in a bucket and push it down manually. I like it tight enough so that when I remove the pods the soil holds together. I then soak the whole tray until it puddles on top, lift the inner tray and drain the remaining water. The new seeds don't drink much water so sometimes once is enough, if anything, you can add one more shot of water. Go easy if you need a second watering. I use a spray bottle and water the seedlings generously allowing the runoff to permeate the soil pods.

What type plastic is used? Polyethylene, LDPE, HDPE or polypropylene #2, 4, 5, 6? Thank you.

Really great for starting seeds.
Really great for starting seeds.
by AJ
Good, not the best but very good still
I have probably 10 of these. the 1020 bottom tray has no holes and is perfect size but it's slightly flimsy and easily can crack. the cell trays come in two parts and work well also, they are also a little fragile and can crack a little. I've been able to wash these and reuse multiple times. the trays that have cracked, I repaired with waterproof tape. if you are trying to grow seeds at home these are a great size and work well. if you are going to buy many, it may be better to search for a bulk option online, for a better quality and price.

Great product
Not a gardener by any means but with everything going on thought I’d give it a try. Bought this product since it came with the watertight tray, dome, and reduced transplant shock. It was great! Seed sprouted quickly and it was easy to use. Perfect for someone like myself who is just learning.

Simply easy to use. Great price. Just follow the instruction on the tray and on your seed packet. (water from the bottom) You May get a second use if you treat the tray gently as it is light plastic material.

I used it with coconut planting soil and if you keep water on tray underneath the planters the seed will always be most without danger of overwatering as I've done before :) I liked the price but I wouldn't mind to pay a little more if the tray was stronger. But overall nice product!

Works very well. I used it for vegetable seeds that I planted last Thursday and they are already sprouting quite a lot. The tray is very simple to use and you can plant up to 72 different types of seeds. I planted 1 vegetable per every 6 cell. I like this product a lot.

The tray is perfect for getting seeds started. The size is just right for moving the tray in and out of the house for getting the most of the ideal growing conditions. There is a perforated area to split the starter in half, admittedly the pods are a little difficult to get the seedlings out but otherwise a great product I've had immense success starting my veggies and herbs for this years garden.

Easy to use, fill with fine soil, put 1 seed per square, I used a spray bottle to water daily, the humidity stays within the tray with the plastic top on and the top will sweet in the sun, the seeds love the environment and within a few days seeds open up and can be transplanted individually to larger containers when plant is at least 2 inches tall.
