Rootrainers encourage vigorous & strong root formation; roots grow straight, avoiding root balls and pot bound plants. Opening the Rootrainer up in a book-like fashion allows for easy inspection of moisture levels and root progress, as well as satisfyingly easy removal of the young plants.

Each pack contains: 1 holding tray, 8 books and a clear propagating lid.

Plants that excel in Rapid Rootrainers include:

Bedding Plants - e.g. Antirinums, Begonias, Bizzie Lizzies, Lobelia

Softwood Cuttings - e.g. Chrysanthemums, Geraniums, Fuchsias, Heathers

Salad Plants  e.g. Lettuce, Radish, Tomatoes

Small Herbs - e.g. Chives, Basil

Helpful Haxnicks hint: this size is especially good for cuttings.

Brilliant product

I haven't used the new ones but wanted more to add to the ones I had second hand from family. They work really well.

Don’t believe the HYPE….? See for yourself …Stunning germination rates

I bought both the Paid and the longer ones. Having mixed my usual seed compost I filled and sowed, top dressed and set on a sunny windowsill. 99% germination with sweet peas and about 90% with chillies. Both doing well. Like the set up and the reusability. Look forward to years of positive results.

Replacement of old friends

I first bought root trainers some 10 or 15 years ago ( can't remember exactly when), but sadly they finally fell to pieces beyond use last year, so these are their replacements. I cannot praise them enough, definitely the best way to grow from seed that I know of.

Too Early

Have not yet planted but pleased with the way they slotted together. Have filled with compost but found a lot fell through through the hole at the bottom.



If you spray lighly with water before planting it will mean less falls through. You can also use the drip tray / cover under it which will block the hole a little and catch the compost so you can reuse it. Remember to wash the cover before you put it over the cells again though so they can get maximum light in.
