Soil Cube Tool
Product Number: C31404
In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
The most ecological way to start seeds! This simple hand-operated garden tool compresses soil into a cube that then is used as both the soil and the container for starting garden seeds. Once the seeds have grown into seedlings, the soil cube containing the seedling is easily transplanted into the garden. Seedlings grown in soil cubes form stronger root systems than those grown in containers due to increased oxygen to the roots and the soil cube’s natural tendency to
air-prune roots. This creates a substantial advantage when seedlings are transplanted into the field, because plants establish themselves more quickly and, because of lessened root disruption, they are less prone to transplant shock. Save money! When compared to purchasing peat pellets, peat pots, or other small plastic pots that will deteriorate over time, the small expense of this tool will be immediately offset in the first few trays of seedlings. Gone is the expense of purchasing small pots, seed starting kits, and seed propagation tools.
