The Charles Dowding 15 cell developed by Charles Dowding and Containerwise (15 cell)
The smallest of the Charles Dowding range is the 15 cell. With just 15 cells it’s the perfect seed tray for our small-scale gardeners out there. It works perfectly with square foot gardening and still has all the benefits of the cd60.
As with the entire Charles Dowding tray range, you can use the trays to extend your growing season and grow more efficiently with less space by interplanting and giving crops a head start.

With more than 40 years of experience, Charles has decided to create his perfect seed tray. Charles is most known for his no dig method and shares all his knowledge for free on his YouTube Channel.
He is growing and cropping loads of vegetables on his homesteading plot called Homeacres. His main focus is on not disturbing the soil and starting almost every plant in a module tray or plug tray to get the most out of the garden space.

The cells of the Charles Dowding trays are tapered to help with quick transplanting and also have large holes in the bottom to help with water drainage and popping out the seedlings.
They are also sturdy so you can hold your tray with one hand while using your other hand to take out the seedlings. Read our Blog about the trays to learn more!

Why would you use the Charles Dowding module trays?
– Long-lasting with a life expectancy of 15+ years
– Sturdy and easy to hold with one hand
– Large holes to pop our seedlings
– Roots are air pruned to support branching

Gardeners in the UK can order their CD30 seed trays through our partner Containwerwise UK here

The CD sowing tray is exactly what I was looking for. The hard plastic makes the trays almost indestructible so they last a very long time. These seed trays are what you want!!!

The growing trays are great class. Not only that they are very stable and will give me pleasure for a long time, they are very flexible due to their different sizes. The CD15 I need, for example, for narrow windowsills.
