Choosing the Right seedling Trays
When selecting seedling trays, consider the following factors:
- Tray material – Plastic, peat and fiber trays each have advantages and disadvantages. Plastic lasts the longest but must be cleaned. Peat and fiber are biodegradable but more delicate.
- Cell size and shape – Match cell size to the seeds or transplants. Larger cells accommodate bigger roots. Different shapes support different species.
- Drainage – Bottom drainage holes are essential to prevent overwatering. Some trays have vertical slits for better aeration.
- Number of cells – Choose trays with the right number of cells for your purposes. Larger trays allow efficient sowing of many seeds.
- Durability – For reuse, pick strong trays that will hold up to multiple seasons. Disposable options work for one-time use.
