Thank you for your question. We recommend using warm water and start by filling the tray about 1/4 way up, pellets will absorb the water and expand 7x their compressed height. Another option is pour in a little water at a time. During this process pellets may shift and will need to be moved back to their determined location or back within the circles in bottom of tray. Once the pellets are completely wet pour off any standing water, if needed, and plant seeds.

Thank you for your question. You want to leave the netting around the pellets. By leaving it helps to avoid disturbing the tender new roots and transplant shock. The roots as they establish will grow thru the netting. Hope this helps and our best to you this season.

I normally just snip the leaves off of the weaker two and leave them to compost back into the soil. All you are doing is giving nature a little hand with Darwin's Law of survival of the fittest. To the winner of the germination race comes the prize, to get the whole pot to itself so it can keep up the good work.
Thank you for your question. This kit actually contains peat pellets and not peat pots. The pellets are 36mm wide, our most popular size, and will expand 7x from their compressed height once warm water is applied or to approximately 3"+ tall. This pellet is ideal size for starting any seed we offer. If you need anything else don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at five 08.285.5800 and our best to you this season.
