Seeds that are hard to germinate and hard to transplant? (Carrots and many root crops). Here’s a pot that lets you germinate the seeds indoors and then set them out with minimal disturbance. The SproutSetter is a specially-designed indoor pot with removable ends and sloping sides.

  1. Germinate the seeds indoors, under ideal germinating conditions
  2. Set the SproutSetter in the trench
  3. Backfill around it with dirt
  4. Remove the ends
  5. Slide the sides out, leaving young plants undisturbed, right in place.

Carrots outgrew direct-seeded, and were nicely-formed, too.
