    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super! Growing pellets are fantastic, the seeds germinate soooooo much better, faster and they seedlings look healthy and strong. It's my second time ordering this product and will continue on doing so..!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super Growing Pellets These pellets did not expand, even after watering them twice I had to take a fork and break them up. They also did not fill up the cell, only filled about 1/4th of the cell. Would not recommend.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from major and total fail These pellets are awful - I am having the same experience as so many others - the things just do not expand and I have been fiddling with them all afternoon. My dining table is a mess, I don't have enough seed starting soil to do anything, and I have limited time to get something like this done (I work a LOT). I was so looking forward to getting this started this afternoon and it has turned into nothing but aggravation. My family has relied on Burpee for generations - now, I am just disgusted with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super growing pellets I have bought these before and continue to do so as they usually start sprouting ten to fifteen days after planting....(I converted my garden tub into a greenhouse, which gets sunlight all through the day......thanx, guys!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I have been using Burpee's super growing pellets for about 5 years now to start seedlings in the Spring. They are so easy to use. Just add water and watch them expand. Add the seeds, keep them watered and watch the seedlings grow. Love them!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Take the guesswork out These make it easy to start seeds. No need to worry about the right soil mix or nutrients to add. Everything just seemed to grow, and didn't make a mess when setting up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I planted 3 different seedling breeds from 2 different manufacturers. Planted on Wed evening and on Friday evening 1 breed has completely sprouted and 1 has just germinated!! I had to check the packages to make sure the seeds weren't some special new quick grow. They're not, all of the packages advertise 7-10 days to germination, wow!! Note on pellets not expanding: I poured warm water over the top of the of the pellets. Pellets positioned flat in the bottom of each cell. Just as the directions state. They all expanded differently and filled the cells at varying levels. I simply moved material from full cells to 1/2 full cells to even them all out. Only a few pellets didn't soften completely. I didn't have a problem with pellets staying completely hard as others stated in their reviews. Didn't use a heat mat (but I did place near a heat vent).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super Growing Pellets Save your money. They simply don't expand no matter how they are in the tray. I finally placed the tray in a sink of hot water to see what would happen. Nothing after an hour. Nice idea if they worked.
