2.8mm holes are designed for smaller seeds such as mizuna, scallions, kale, shallots, turnips, and some greens.

When using with kale you will have about 1-2 seeds per hole and will drop 1.2g of seed.

Radish seed may work, but based on our trials most radish seed is too large for these holes.

 

3.5mm holes are designed for smaller seeds such as mizuna, scallions, kale, shallots, turnips, and some greens.

When using with kale you will have about 3-4 seeds per hole and will drop 2.7g of seed.

When using with radish you will have about 1 seed per hole and will drop 2.9g of seed.

 

6mm holes are designed for larger seeds such as spinach, radish, beets, and with microgreens.

When using with kale you will have about 10 seeds per hole and will drop 7.1g of seed.

When using with radish you will have about 3-4 seeds per hole and will drop 9.4g of seed.

 

8mm holes are designed for larger seeds and microgreens.

When using with kale you will have about 20 seeds per hole and will drop 13g of seed.

When using with radish you will have about 6-7 seeds per hole and will drop 17.2g of seed.

 

Tiny seeds like amaranth will work in the seeder, but based on our trials static electricity creates some issues, so with tiny seeds like amaranth it may be easier to seed by hand if you are doing multiple flats for microgreens.

 

We also have additional seed plates which fit this seeder with hole sizes: 2.8mm, 3.5mm, 6mm, and 8mm.

Note: This seed plate will only fit into this 4.5mm Drop Seeder Unit that we sell.  It will not fit into the 2.8mm drop seeder which was previously sold a la carte.  And it probably will not fit into seeders made and/or sold by other companies.

Note:  The drop seeder is specifically designed for the hole spacings of the paper chain pots and will not work with a standard 10/20 flat.

 

Shipping is a flat rate $20 on all continuous US orders.  

Whether you order 1 item or 100, it’s only going to cost you $20 to have the whole order shipped.
