There's a knack to slotting the pods together. Once mastered they are easy to use and provide a perfect environment for starting off seeds that produce long roots.

Perfect for growing sweet peas from seed

5

These root trainers were great for sowing my sweet peas in the Autumn. The deep cells have vertical ridges which encourage the roots down. Which is just what you want for sweet peas. Once Rooted the root trainers open up so its easy to get out the rooted sweet peas without disturbing the roots.

I would recommend this product

Deep Root Trainers are easy to construct, hold ample growing medium for at least 6 weeks growth, provide excellent drainage, make transplanting easy without disturbing the roots, and provide more plants for a given area of space in a propagator. I found they dispensed with the need to separate and transplant tomato seedlings, reducing disturbance. Simply fill to 2/3 and sow a seed, and top up with soil around the seedling later.

Pretty good

Good idea and works well provided I tie string round the root trainers to stop them springing apart once filled with compost.

The only way to sow sweet peas

Simplicity itself, rooted seedlings easily removed and planted on. Remaining seedlings are not damaged in the process. I've had mine for three years now.

I am a novice gardener and know nothing about growing plants from seed so have a number of questions! When do you put the seedlings in the Root Trainer? Are they planted in the cells as seeds (if so how many seeds should be put in each cell) or transferred there after sprouting in little pots somewhere else? When in the Root Trainer, should they be in a cold frame until ready to be planted in the ground or are they okay some place outside and sunny? Is the Root Trainer easy enough to use for a first time seed grower? Many thanks

Stargirl

Hello, Root trainers are essentially pots with ribbed sides, so they are just as easy to use and you can sow your seeds straight into them. How many seeds you sow in each will depend on what you are sowing, but as a very general rule I would recommend planting two in each so you will have a backup if one dies off. As for whether or not they need to go into a cold frame, this again will depend on what you are growing as some of the seedlings will need protection while others wont. It is important therefore to follow the instructions on the seed packet carefully.

There is more than one way to plant a pea.Anyway, so I was sowing my peas the other day, for it March and therefore time to get one of my favourite crops in the ground. I grow lots of different kinds: an early type – ‘Meteor’ this year, but it could j
