Our Jiffy Peat Pots are genuine jiffy products and the perfect, biodegradable solution to your planting needs. They’re well-suited to the controlled conditions within many modern nurseries and for general garden use.
They are easy to use, just add soil, seeds and water. They are used in much the same way as regular plastic pots, however they are made from peat allowing roots to grow straight through them. This results in healthier roots, and removes the necessity of “de-potting” the plants as the pot will break down over time.
Many gardeners and nurseries that use Jiffy peat and coir pots have remarked that their plants and crops grow faster than they would when using other pots, sometimes up to several weeks faster than normal plastic pots, leading them to become some of the best sellers amongst professional and amateur gardeners alike. Many hydroponics users would agree that Jiffy’s peat pots are a better choice than normal plastic pots, due to the ease with which they can be used and planted without disturbing Roots.
The pots also allow for more even water distribution to the plants that they house, making them ideal for use in sub-irrigated beds and with crops that have much more precise water requirements. Many growers who use these pots in hydroponic growing set-ups often say that some of their plants will start sprouting after 2 days when using Jiffy-7 pots to propagate them. They have been proven through rigorous testing to provide the best germination rates possible for seedlings, cuttings and other small plants.
