What to sow in this tray

Almost all plants growing in Charles Dowding's no-dig garden at Homeacres start in his seed trays. Designed with large drainage holes, these cells are especially suitable for supporting your seedlings during their first 4 to 6 weeks. After this period, you can plant out your seedlings in the garden or give the roots more space to grow in larger cell-sized trays or individual pots.

For plants like tomatoes and bell peppers, which need to be grown under cover until the last frost has passed, you will need to repot them from the CD30 to other pots or cells first. These plants require a frost-free environment to thrive.

Pros and cons

According to our gardening experts

  • Perfect for maximizing your growing potential in limited space, whether on a windowsill, in a greenhouse, or on a small balcony.
  • Built to last with a lifespan of 15+ years, making it a smart, long-term investment for any gardener.
  • Never worry about overwatering with the large drainage holes in each cell, ensuring excess water drains away effectively.
  • Sowing is modules is great for peat-free compost

Smaller cells use less compost but require regular watering to keep your seedlings hydrated and thriving.

Sowing larger plants like courgettes or tomatoes requires transplanting to larger cell-size trays or pots after a few weeks.
