Exclusively designed and sold by Bootstrap Farmer, the only Seedling Starter Kit you will ever need. Understanding that farms are NOT a place for fragile objects, we decided to produce these trays for our own farm based off our own dissatisfaction with the flimsy and brittle quality of the other trays available online and in the big box stores. Tired of wasting money and putting more plastic into the landfills, we decided to produce trays that were thicker, could carry more weight and withstand even this farmers abuse. We are a small family farm in Eastern NC where we grow our own produce for a farm-to-food truck concept. We grow lettuce, kale, chard, microgreens, tomatoes, peppers, onions, you name it. We'd love to know what you've got yourself into, so feel free to contact us to chat about it! Key Features: Extra Thick Black Seed Propagation Flat Trays with and without holes, and Ultra Durable Humidity Domes. These are meant to be reused over and over, season after season. They are perfect for vegetables, herbs, flowers and germination of seedlings in soil or hydroponics for hobby or commercial growers. These are heavy duty 1020 trays sold exclusively by Bootstrap Farmer. The drainage holes allow for roots to continue to grow through the bottom of the cell tray, if desired. They are large enough for roots to find their way, but also small enough to hold moistened vermiculite in place. The extra thick dome keeps moisture in with an included vents to control air flow.

I contacted the company immediately but have yet to hear any response.
Update: 16 Sept 2017
Brandon (the Bootstrap Farmer himself...), followed up with me directly after I contacted them via their website. They never got my "reviewer feedback" from Amazon apparently, and my order had gotten caught up in the inventory transition from the older trays. They are replacing with the deeper ones at no charge.
Personally, I am just beginning gardening again after a long gap. I am convinced that organic is very important. I put in a couple of raised beds two years ago, I started vermicomposting last year (this has gone pretty well...using hungrybin method), and I am going to begin starting my own seedlings this winter. Bootstrapfarmer.com has some good beginning gardener articles on their website with respect to germinating from seed. It's worth checking out.
This year, I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try out some trickier seeds. Seeds that needed a little extra encouragement to come into the world. Seeds that might be too delicate for the raised beds (still overflowing with last summer's greens).
Looking through the seed starter kits on Amazon, I saw lots of relatively more affordable options, but the reviews sounded grim. Bootstrap's product seemed sturdier -- I didn't want something that fell apart in my hands -- and I also liked their philosophy and emphasis on sustainability.
The kit arrived quickly and I planted the first set of seeds. I'm still in the waiting phase, and since some of the seeds are supposed to take up to nine months to germinate (if they decide to go ahead and germinate) the kit is going to be a fixture in my life for a while. But right now, it's a little garden ecosystem tucked away in a corner of a room, and I expect it will continue to support my explorations in gardening for the foreseeable future.
1. The new and improved height places my lights too high above the soil. I have some nice spindly plants.
2. It leaks like mad. Any water that condenses on the clear plastic lid drips down the side and OVER THE EDGE OF THE TRAY. Why not make the tray large enough to collect water that drips from the lid? Is that not what a tray is for?
3. The lid attaches to the cells, so it's not easy to pull it off to water the plants.
4. The cells are not rigid enough to allow them to be lifted easily for bottom watering.
I know, I know: I'm supposed to have brighter lights. And waterproof surfaces. And more patience.
Or just some disposable baking pans and peat pots.
