Sow Perfect Seeder
« on: September 26, 2017, 11:18:45 AM »
I saw this today and decided to purchase one for planting seeds in the cell planters. It seems to be simple and an easy planter for the gardener who wants to raise his own transplants. This is a video:

That looks really neat. I hope it works out well for you and please let us know if it does once you put it to use. Tiny seeds are always difficult to handle.

I used the one that I won at the GTG.

Works well but I am able to plant faster with  a carpenter's pencil and a small hand seeder. 

Gonna try it again at some point but I like the process I use

I love the one I have.  It works well for round seeds that are about the same size.  If the seed size varies, it may put two seeds in the hole with others having only one.  It does not work well (unless there's something I don't know) with seeds that are not round.  Carrots and lettuce are examples.  But what I do in that case is have a wet napkin next to the seeder and with a moistened finger put one seed in each hole.  It works great except for days like Friday when the wind blows the seed out of the hole.  I really hate thinning out plants that have sprouted too close to each other and the seeder makes the spacing (almost) perfect as the name calls it.  I only used it for raised beds.  If you have long rows, you might need something else to sow your seeds.  Bill

Those really look neat, especially for anyone using flats to start lots of seedlings.  Betcha it will come in handy.  I ordered an item the other day called the Super Seeder.  Its a little german item (totally plastic) with a metal handle.  It has two plastic drive wheels and plastic seed plates.  The whole shebang weighs less than 5 lbs.  I'm gonna use it for onion seed and carrot seed.  I usually only plant a row each in the garden.  The thing is supposed to meter seed (4 spacings) and leaves the furrow open so you can see that seed actually fell and are spaced correctly.  I figured what the devil, it's only 35 bucks or so and that won't break me.  Most everything else I plant involves some volume and I can use the Covington with the drill.

Well the thing arrived today thanks to UPS.  I assembled it and except for the handle, I like it.  The two piece handle is cheesy.  This thing will only work in super clean super tilled soil.  I mean like talcum powder.  No pebbles, chunks or hiccups.  PERFECTLY tilled soft soil (level too).  This would be THE TICKET for folks using elevated beds or willing to make two or four passes with the pto powered tiller per row.  Drops seeds perfectly and pretty evenly spaced.  It IS DELICATE though.  This ain't heavy duty machinery.  It seems to be accurate though (spaces seed well) and I like the general setup and plate changing seems OK (bear in mind it is delicate).  For 40 odd bucks it is adequate enough.  It is called the SUPER SEEDER and it's on EBAY and at Amazon for $39.95.  I could not find a video that I like or I'd have posted it there.  There is a Spanish guy on youtube that does a pretty good job but he's WAY TOO BUSY with the camera.  The video was bouncing around so much I got seasick.  The link I found is:  suttons.co.uk  (I could not get the link to post for some reason).
