Jiffy Seed Starting Peat Strip Trays, Peat Strip Tray Greenhouses & Organic Seed Starting Soil Mix: What are they to gardeners? How are they used for gardening?
Here's what makes Jiffy peat strip trays & peat strip tray greenhouses a top choice for indoor seed starting...
Jiffy Peat Strips are biodegradable cell trays produced using Canadian sphagnum peat moss and wood pulp. Peat strip trays are most often used in gardening to start seeds indoors. They are popular in the gardening community
because they are easy to use and sustainably sourced. We offer a variety of Jiffy seed starting peat strip products on FerryMorse.com like bundles of peat strips and peat strip greenhouses.
Jiffy Peat Strip Tray bundles come in either 8 or 10 cell strips while Jiffy Peat Strip Seed Starting Greenhouses will come with celled trays made of Jiffy’s Canadian peat moss, a watertight tray and a clear humidity dome. If you’re a new or a novice gardener, then we suggest beginning with one of our Jiffy Peat Strip Greenhouses. You can use your tray and dome multiple times; simply replenish the peat strips when you need to.
Peat strips do not come with soil. Therefore, you need to be sure that you have the proper medium for sowing your seeds in your peat strips. We suggest using Jiffy’s Seed Starting Soil. Specially formulated to promote seed germination, Jiffy Seed Starting Soil is produced using peat moss, vermiculite and lime.
Peat moss can hold up to 20x its weight in water while retaining necessary plant nutrients
Vermiculite prevents soil compaction, retains moisture and improves root aeration; vermiculite can also soak up to 3-4x its volume in water
Lime promotes a healthy PH balance in soil
Starting your seeds indoors using peat strip trays is preferable because you can start up to 10 plants per tray (depending on the tray you choose) and the best part about using peat strip trays: once the seedlings emerge and they are ready for transplanting, gardeners can easily tear the tray cells apart and transplant the seedling (peat cell and all) directly into a new pot or the ground because of their biodegradable composition!
There you have it! Everything you need to start your seeds indoors using Jiffy peat strips and seed starting soil!
