Assembles in a snap!

Beat unseasonable chills!

Start 50 seeds in these peat pots, which fit snugly (all joined at the top) into a plastic tray with a fitted clear plastic dome. When the seedlings are ready to transplant into the garden, just snip apart the pots and plant them -- pot and all! -- into the soil. Growing from seed doesn't get much simpler than that!

These pots are completely bio-degradable, with plants' roots growing out the sides and base over time. They each measure 1¾ inches high, and fit into a tray 22 inches long and 11 inches wide. Compact and lightweight, the Jiffy Strip Greenhouse can be refilled with new starter pots several times!

This space-saver works well with grow lights and heat mats, and its clear plastic cover provides some warmth and humidity as well. Bottom-watering the seedlings encourages the roots to grow downward instead of spiraling, and if the plants grow too large before transplant time, it's easy to divide the pots, keeping some in the Jiffy Strip Greenhouse while placing others in another tray. Versatile, economical, and easy! 11" wide x 22" long x approx 6" high (with clear top).

Pricey for the quality. Plastic fittings break easily
Ohiogal from OH wrote (December 19, 2011):
I bought 2 of these in the Spring of 2011. They assembled easily, but the plastic fittings that are for the corners and the locking arms break easily. I'm not sure if you can get replacement parts - still searching for an answer to that one. I like them because they are easily moved, but you MUST stake them down and they MUST be closed if a T-storm approaches. They are ultra-light and sail easily. I did find them great for starting colder season plants like lettuce, collards, mustard and radishes in March. If I were to do this again, I'd look at building my own - the cost would be about the same if you scrounge old windows for the lid and the quality would be far better.
