Deep Rootrainers ensure your seedlings grow strong straight roots right down into the soil where they can access water and nutrients. They are perfect for plants that have fast-growing roots, such as beans, sweet peas and delphiniums. ideally suited for all bedding and container plants, salads and herbs. This size is especially good for cuttings.
Simply sow a seed, or place a cutting or plug plant in each cell. The Rootrainers help plants get off to a better start in several way.
1: The cells are open at the bottom to allow early root tips to make contact with the air and die off, which are replaced by fresh young roots.
2: The rectangular shape of the Rootrainers encourages roots to grow straight which helps to give the plants a better start when transplanted.
3: Grooves in the Rootrainer cells encourages more roots to develop on the outside of the plug.
4: Each cell has a hinge opening making it easy to remove the young plants without disturbing the roots.
