The kit is not required, but it does include several pieces of of REQUIRED equipment such as the spreader bars and five spreader frames. The other pieces of the kit – the dibbler, the drop seeder, and the brush – just make the whole seeding process easier and more efficient.
The kit is shipped all as one piece and cannot be broken up. Several individual components such as the spreader bars, spreader frames, and drop seeder are also available as individual items in The Farm Store.
Save by purchasing the kit versus individual components.
Quickly create depressions for seeds in all 264 holes of the paper chain pot. The dibbler allows you to take what could be a time consuming step and turn it into an operation which only takes a few seconds. The dibbler is manufactured to create 264 uniform 12mm holes which work in conjunction with paperpot drop seeders.
This dibbler will work for any paperpot drop seeder, regardless of drop seeder hole size.
Note: The dibbler is specifically designed for the hole spacing of the paper chain pots.
Drop Seeder – 4.5mm Holes
Quickly and accurately seed all 264 holes of the paper chain pot in seconds.
Just imagine seeding 264 holes one by one by hand versus seeding all 264 holes in one quick step. The drop seeder is another piece of appropriate technology which saves you money by decreasing labor and controlling seed waste.
The seed plate has 4.5mm holes designed for larger seeds such as beets, carrots, green onion, Salanova, and head lettuce.
We also carry a drop seeder with 2.8mm holes.
Note: The drop seeder is specifically designed for the hole spacing of the paper chain pots.
5 – Spreader Frames
The rigid metal frame holds the paper pots open inside the nursery flat while you fill the paper chain pots with soil. After 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 spreader frame is a REQUIRED component of the paper pot system. You can’t use the paper chain pots without this.
5 spreader frames are included in kit to allow you to greatly speed up your seeding operation.
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.
The spreader bars are a REQUIRED component of the paper pot system. You can’t use the paper chain pots without these.
Used to spread and level off the potting soil when filling the paper chain pots.
