Seedstarter Put to the Test

After thorough testing of the Fast Start® Seedstarter, we are excited to finally send it out into the world. Because it’s brand new, we are eager to hear what gardeners think.

The Fast Start® Seedstarter

The culmination of four years of research and testing, our new system represents a breakthrough in seedstarting. The new planting tray is made from a cornstarch-based material that offers the sturdiness of plastic yet breaks down in a landfill. What’s more, the reservoir is dishwasher-safe and the capillary mat can be tossed in the washing machine.

After thorough testing of the Fast Start® Seedstarter, we are excited to finally send it out into the world. Because it’s brand new, we are eager to hear what gardeners think. To get things started, we assembled a team of testers from across the nation: Hawaii, Mississippi, South Carolina, Wyoming, Washington DC, Arizona, Massachusetts, and West Virginia. Their response to the Fast Start has been overwhelmingly positive.

Jen Osha and Nick Buysse, our testers from West Virginia, wrote, “our Green Magic Broccoli have already sprouted! Wow! We haven’t had to spray or water at all. The soil has maintained the right moisture content. The instructions are clear and it’s easy to put together for people with different levels of experience.”

We are fortunate to have a diverse group of gardeners like Jen, who is founder and president of Aurora Lights, an organization that works to raise awareness about the social and environmental impacts of mountaintop removal coal mining. Her goal: “to restore a sense of the sacred balance between the earth and the human community that will promote sustainable and thoughtful land stewardship.” Aurora Lights also teaches gardening skills to promote self-sufficiency.

As product tester for Gardener’s Supply, I give the Fast Start two thumbs up, but am thrilled to hear that our customers like using it, too.

    I love this sort of stuff. I have had trouble starting my own seeds by simply forgetting to water them. That’s actually why I turned to hydroponics gardening, where everything can be automated. This seeds starting method is the perfect companion to the hydroponics gardener.
