This is the first year I'm growing my vegetable seeds in standard greenhouse trays and inserts. As a result I wound up getting some inserts I thought were something else and I'm trying to figure out if I should use them or not.
Instead of getting deep 606 or 32 deep inserts I wound up getting 3601 inserts which have measurements of 2.23" L x 1.94" W X 2.23" D and can hold 7.32 cubic inches of soil. The amount of soil is similar to a 806 deep cell which is what's commonly sold in nurseries around here.
I'm starting my seeds in 98 cell trays. I have 3" sheet pots that I plan to transplant most of my tomatoes to but wondering what, if anything, I can use the 3601 inserts for so I don't have to buy additional inserts this season.
Some of the things I'm starting from seeds include:
- another batch of tomatoes that will grow for 2 weeks less than my main ones
Can I get away with using these wide shallow inserts or should I just get something deeper? What are good uses for these inserts?
