Rated 2 out of 5 by from Growing Pellets I bought these pellets few months back in the springtime 30-40% of them were crumbs, because they we were send loose in the plastic bag and that's why I am disappointed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor plant growth I had good germination with my dragon wing begonias and petunias however the petunias did nothing and started to die. The begonias did fine and are growing well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The little pellets never expanded with warm water! I like that there is a cover to create a greenhouse effect, and a system to keep the seeds moist. But the pellets did not expand, even after an hour of watering it and waiting. I had to take a knife to break it apart, and even then they didn't expand. I had to put regular potting soil in the individual holes. I just hope my seeds germinate!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but poor quality control. I've had 100% germination in two 72 tray systems and 97% in the third tray system; using Burpee seeds. Purchased a 144 pack refill pack and it was missing a cube. Double checked and no, two cubes were not stuck together. The cubes barely expand enough to fill the tray holes so there is no extra soil mix to work with. Can't believe I now how to go buy some Miracle Grow. Defeats the whole point to start with. Bummer.

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.
