Rated 5 out of 5 by gandy Really great product for vegetable seeds
Initially I bought a forty cell propagator that was so efficient I went back and bought 4 more!!! I have been searching for a product like this for ages.
Planning ahead and sowing "successional" seeds in modules, means at least 4 - 6 weeks time is saved allowing the ground or greenhouse to remain in continuous productive use. The seedlings grow more sturdily without adverse weather and pest problems. Plants get off to a flying start since there is virtually no root disturbance. I found it more helpful to ease each module seperately using my finger. I also labelled each row and column of the polystyrene with a black marker pen and kept notes of the seeds sown. I found the product firmly constructed and easy to use. Careful handling will ensure many years of service. Heat is retained in the polystyrene & this does require monitoring in summer. Too much initial watering plus the capillary action of the matting may give rise to over-watering of the germinating seeds.
This product has helped me to revolutionise my ability to grow plants from seed.
Mr Parasene (manufacturer), a 15 cm (6 inch) root-trainer unit would be very useful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ms. Dalek Does the job, but be careful
Yes, your itsy-bitsy plants will get the water they need, provided you remember to fill it every now and then. I know that the hole is fairly small to prevent excessive loss of water in the form of evaporation, but I do wish it was slightly bigger. Also, the bottom tray is quite wobbly, so be careful, when you move a full tary with soil and water!

Great for when you're away for a few days - keeps soil moist and the lid acts as a mini greenhouse in a sheltered position outside

This is a godsend, no more stressing about watering every day, it waters for well over a week.
I wish I had these years ago.
So clever but so simple, makes my life so much easier.
Removing the seedlings is a doddle too, can't fault this in any way.

So easy to plant and once you've watered easy to monitor when it needs more.
Plants grew far faster than the others in the greenhouse.
