Seed starting kits offer an excellent value if you want to grow your own tomato plants from seeds. By purchasing a kit, you save money over the price of buying individual components. And kits are convenient. In one package, you get all you need to start tomato seeds. Beginners, in particular, are drawn to kits because using them makes starting tomato seeds much less intimidating.
Gardener’s Supply and Burpee offer a range of seed starting kits for tomatoes. You can also get going with a Beginner Seedstarting Kit.
Seed starting kits come with trays that have different numbers of cells. You can choose a kit offering the number of cells that meets your needs. If you want to start only a few plants, buy a kit with a smaller number of cells. If you’re interested in growing large numbers of tomatoes, get larger trays. And seed starting kits come with all different numbers of cells in between. (Compare different seed starting kits in the full article here)
