Your choices are endless when it comes to how to start vegetable seeds. I have seen, and in many cases used, such things as expanding peat pods, red solo cups, used plastic bottles, and so much more. But for me, I go back to old reliable, 6 cell seed starting trays.

They are inexpensive, easy to use, and fit nicely into plant growing trays, which are also very inexpensive. I can easily maneuver them around, and easily remove plants when they are ready to either go outside or into a larger container. They are also reusable.

One downfall to them is they are somewhat fragile. You can bend them and possibly tear them if you are too rough, but I think the pros far outweigh the cons when it comes to using them. They also take up very little space, both when in use to grow and when you are storing them for when they are not in use. They stack very easily, just be sure that you give them a quick rinse and air dry to get out any leftover soil.

Check out the video above of the ones that I use. They are well worth the investment, since you can get about 50 of them for $10 (US), or roughly 288 planting spots. That’s a whole lot of seed starting.

Happy gardening!
