“It really took the anxiety and guesswork out of the most difficult part of getting started. For new growers like myself, I'd consider it a required tool.” 

Peggy, Santa Rosa CA

“I couldn’t start tomatoes from seed before, but now I can!”

“I just ordered my fifth self-watering seed starter. They have really performed beautifully and all my seeds have sprouted easily in them. The self watering feature works like a charm and helps germinate the seeds on a consistent basis”
