Getting started with a new system can be confusing, so we put together the complete starter package for someone who is completely new to the paper pot system.
The package includes everything that you need to get started on your farm – all you need to do is add seeds and soil.
The Starter Package Includes:
1 – Paperpot Transplanter
The main component of the paper pot system. With this tool, one person can transplant 264 seedlings in minutes!
The paperpot transplanter can be used for all paper chain pots we carry giving you the ability to space seedlings at 2, 4, and 6″ spacings. Chain pots are loaded onto the deck of the transplanter and are pulled out of the transplanter behind you as you pull the transplanter forward. A build in shoe cuts furrow into the soil to receive the chain pots while sweeps and the rear wheels close the furrow around the transplants.
The transplanter is versatile. Growers have used this tool to transplant lettuce, radishes, turnips, onions, peas, beans, herbs, and many more crops.
Assembled the device is 12″ wide and 84″ long. The height is adjustable from 32 to 44″ and it weighs around 35lbs.
Note: Soil structure is critical to the performance of this tool. Wet, heavy clay soils may make the device more challenging to use. The device works best in light soils with good tilth.

1 – Dibbler
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 of making 264 holes one by one and turns in into a simple step which only takes a few seconds.
The dibbler is manufactured to create 264 uniform 12mm holes which work in conjunction with paperpot drop seeders.
1 – Spreader Frame
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.
This frame was specifically designed to work with the Kwik Klik™️ drop seeder.
1 – Set Spreader Bars
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.
40 – Paperpot Germination Trays
Germination trays hold the paper chain pots during seeding and germination. The trays give structure to the paper chain pots while providing drainage via bottom holes. One tray can hold one paper chain (264 plants) and the plants must remain in the tray until transplanting. Depending on the size of your farm you may need to order additional trays.
The germination trays can also be dually purposed for growing microgreens.
