A pair of spreader bars and a single spreader frame gives you the ability to get started with paper chains with minimal equipment.
The spreader bars help you spread out the paper chain and the spreader frame holds the paper chain open while you fill it with soil.
Save 20% by purchasing the kit versus purchasing each item individually.
The rigid metal frame holds the paper pots open inside the nursery flat while you fill the paper chain pots with soil. After the soil has been added the frame can be removed, with the soil holding the chain pots open. If your farm is doing a lot of transplanting, then you may want more than one frame to allow multiple people to fill flats.
The metal rods slide into the sides of the compressed paper chain pots and are then used to pull the chain pots apart so you can place them onto the spreader frame. The spreader rods can be removed after the paper chain pots are secured on the spreader frame. If your farm is doing a lot of transplanting, then you may want more than one set of spreader bars to allow multiple people to fill flats.
Our Paper Pot System Starter Kit includes 5 spreader frames and other seeding equipment, which may be a better choice for more serious paperpot users.
