You all know that we decided to transform part of our backyard to an edible garden… well, I was given the chance to review some great things for gardening.

Today I am going to talk about two from Ramini Brands:

- Germination Trays
- Biodegradable Peat Pots

Let's start with the germination trays:

The package contains three (3) trays. Each tray has 12 cells. They are 1.5" wide.

I use these trays mostly for my small seeds: peppers, some tomatoes, lettuce, broccoli, arugula, etc… seeds that I know can stay a while after spurting here because they don't need so much space for their roots as others.

The material of these germination trays is a thin plastic that works great to push the seedlings from the bottom to take them out without having to disrupt their roots too much.

So far I have arugula, broccoli, asparagus, brussels sprouts and sunflowers. They sprouted in less than a week.

The bottom of the germination tray cells has a hole, it's their drainage. When you sow seeds you want the seeds to stay in damp soil, but not too wet because you'll kill 'em lol! I have drowned a lot of seeds AND seedlings! So these drainage holes are the lifesavers!

Now we are just waiting for these seedlings to be big enough to transplant them outside. 

While we wait for those to grow we planted some other seeds using the biodegradable peat pots.

They are the bomb! The package comes with ten (10) pots. They are sturdy and they measure 3" wide and 3.25" long, perfect size for my bigger seedlings (squash, pumpkin, cucumber, sunflowers, peas or fava beans)

The biodegradable peat pots are super lightweight and they fit into each other so makes them portable, really easy to transport.

Biodegradable is the best part. You just sow the seeds, wait for them to grow and plant it (seedling still inside the pot) in the garden when ready. You don't have to worry about damaging or hurting the roots when repotting the seedlings into bigger containers or when taking them out to plant them in the garden. 

Both products are amazing! They would work absolutely great as gifts for gardeners and even for kids to start learning about where food comes from. My little one is obsessed with gardening and I am enjoying every bit of it! Check him out:

 It is a great opportunity for quality time with your little ones :)
