Natural Rubber Reusable Seed Trays

PriceFrom £13.50

Plant the seeds of change with these reusable, fairly traded, natural rubber* seed trays!


Durable plastic-free seed trays made from FSC-certified ‘fair rubber’. Grow-your-own in the comforting knowledge that the seed tray you are using is sustainably sourced and designed to last.

Gardeners rejoice in the use of this sustainable alternative to brittle plastic tat seed trays that may be bought for ten-a-penny but have to be thrown away by the pound.


Choose between these variably sized seed trays to get your seedlings started:


30 pot seed tray = £13.50

Full size of tray - 29 x 22 x 4.5cm. Each individual pot is 3 x 3 x 4 cm.

Plenty of pots for you to start many seedlings growing at once!


20 pot seed tray = £15.50

Full size of tray – 32 x 25 x 5 cm. Each individual pot is 5 x 5 x 5 cm.

This 20 pot seed tray has a groove in the middle allowing it to be easily cut in half so that if you want, you can fit it onto a windowsill (or so you can share the other half with a green-fingered friend!)


6 pot seed tray = £16.50

Full size of tray - 23.5 x 15.5 x 6.5 cm. Each individual pot is 6 x 6 x 6 cm.

This seed tray is suitable for use in growing larger seedings such as pumpkins. The fewer pots the sturdier the tray.



Root Coach™ = £18.50

Full size of tray – 20 x 9 x 12 cm. Each individual pot is 3.5 x 3.5 x 12 cm.

The Root Coach™ seed tray is made up of 8 pots, which can be separated into two rows of four. Each row can also be further opened up so that you can carefully extract long-rooted seedlings without damaging the root. (The photos above show how this works.) If you buy more than one Root Coach™ you can connect these units together!



*Not suitable for those allergic to latex.

  • The ubiquitous black plastic seed trays found in garden sheds across the nation. Flimsy and liable to crack. Black plastic is particularly annoying, as exposure to sunlight makes it far more likely to degrade and break into microplastics than other types. These black plastic trays are not designed to be recyclable - recycling centres have trouble with sorting black plastic, so they just don’t. Without any in front of me to confirm exactly what type of plastic they are, my guess is that they are mostly made out of polypropylene or PP (marked out by a number 5) because they are brittle and can be snapped in the same way that other PP items, like yoghurt pots, can be. PP is not recycled in most areas. This means when these plastic seed trays inevitably split, they have to be thrown into landfill… if they haven’t already disintegrated and spread microplastic shards over your garden.
