Handle carefully and the tray will last many years. If you find you want a firmer or stronger tray, just nestle two together before you do your planting. The trays are not meant to push into row garden hard soil, but merely to fluff up the Mel’s Mix in a square foot, then carefully lower the tray onto the soil, gently pushing down in order to make an impression and then lift the tray out and move the soil so the tray will fit better, then re-lower the tray. Where the watering spikes are, you can use your trowel to remove just a little bit of the Mel’s mix and where the tray fits over a raised portion, you can mound up the soil in that area. Then you push the tray down very carefully into the soil and you’re all finished.
Warm Weather Crops
The tray is excellent for all vine warm weather crops spaced one per square foot. When you’re planting something like squash, that require two square feet per plant, you merely locate the tray in the center of two adjoining square feet on the north side underneath the tomato tower. Usually you plant seeds and you could plant the seed right through the center hole of the tray or you could plant the seed at the proper location in the Mel’s Mix and then when it sprouts, lower the tray down over the newly sprouted plant. When you’re putting in transplants rather than seeds, other warm weather plants that would appreciate the tray will be pepper of any variety and eggplant.
Designed especially for both bush and vine tomato plants
Also great for all Peppers, Eggplant, cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower.
Saves water, moderates soil temperature for uniform growth.
12"x12" Waterproof tray- reusable every year
Cool Weather Crops
Trays are not only good for tomatoes, but just as good if not better, for any of the cool weather crops that are spaced one per square foot. Examples would be anything from the cabbage family, including both red and green cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. The tray would be installed when you first plant the small transplant into your garden. This will help moderate the soil both day and night; as well as, funnel rainwater down into the root location. It would also keep any weed seeds from sprouting that might have gotten into your garden.
