At Jekka's we have long been looking for a more sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to plastic for our seed trays.
These rubber seed trays are ethically sourced, sustainable and long-lasting. This innovative and unique reusable 30 cell seed tray is made from Fairly Traded FSC certified nature rubber.
Unlike cheap plastic seed trays that often crack or break after one or two uses, this rubber seed tray is robust, flexible and long-lasting. Gardeners are sure to appreciate the supple nature of the natural rubber used to make the seed trays, making removing seedlings easy.
Natural rubber is an entirely sustainable product grown by small farmers or on plantations. The rubber is sourced from suppliers whose plantations are certified not to have replaced natural forests, in this case, a small plantation in Sri Lanka. The workers receive a Fair Trade premium to help improve their working and living conditions.
If you require compost, see Jekka's Propagating Kit. This kit contains a variety of substrates to allow you to grow both herb cuttings and seeds.
Read Jekka's Guide to Sustainable Gardening for more ideas.
This seed tray contains 30 cells; each is 3 x 3 x 4 cm. Overall dimensions 29 x 22 x 4.5 cm. The seed tray is black as that is shown to be more durable than rubber in other colours.
