The size of these "peat pots" are perfect for starting your seeds early!! You can establish strong, healthy plants in them!! I bought 44 "peat pots" and have already planted 28 of them!! I will have Tomatoes, Green & Red Peppers, Italian Basil, Eggplants, Herbs, and Fresh Lavender----- all established, with a healthy root system, early!! And, this is just the beginning! I will be buying more, later!!
