Everything you need to get started with starting your own seeds. This kit contains a Jiffy Easy Grow Greenhouse to start your seeds in, a small seed starting mix that has enough soil to fill your greenhouse trays, a heat mat to aid germination and get a good and healthy start, and some water soluble fertilizer to keep your starts healthy and strong. This is everything I love to use. The heat mat makes a huge difference. I find that tomatoes start in days instead of weeks, and it's almost necessary with peppers. Peppers can take up to a month without the heat, but can be up and growing in a week or less with a heat mat. The seed starting mix is my favorite, based on coconut coir, which does a great job of retaining water and transferring nutrients. I like to use the water soluble fertilizer once a week to keep the seedlings strong and give them a great head start.
Each kit contains the following:
- Jiffy Easy Grow Greenhouse
- Small Seed Starting Mix
- 9x20 heat mat
- Water Soluble Fertilizer

As a new, (but ambitious!), gardener I found having a set-up like this kit is what gave me the courage to go for it with my gardening dreams. For someone who has known gardening in theory, but never had the space, time, or energy to do it before, I didn't want to take on any more 'work' or 'research' than necessary in order to just get started. I have purchased several of these kits, and they work great! How surprised and delighted I was when only a few days later, sprouts began! The heat mat, I think is a great addition. What makes the difference when it comes to having seeds start right away, which is great here, where the weather can veer from beautiful and sunny to cold and rainy with seemingly no warning. The soil mix is perfection. I followed the instructions on the site, and it worked great. The only issue I am having is dealing with the right ratio of moisture, but that might be mine to finesse. Although I am close enough to begin direct sowing many of the seeds, even that small head-start indoors makes a difference, and this kit is what has helped me to get that started. Thank you!
