A Germination tray is a gardening tool specifically designed to hold multiple seeds, starting from the germination stage, until the seedlings are ready for transplantation. Using such a tray ensures better nutrient availability for each seed, and eliminates the need for multiple plantings. The blocks of plastic tray are in cone shape which helps in the proper growth and development of the roots.
Germination trays are used by commercial growers to produce seedlings for planting out. The seedlings are easily removed from the tray for transplanting and the growth check to transplants from cell trays is minimal when planted in the field compared to the use of other types of transplants. Pro-Trays should be used for the production of good variety seedlings and to save place.
