Tools for watering seeds and seedlings

๐Ÿ’ฆย Recycled water cans with a spray nozzle capย - After trying and testing many different kinds of small water cans or sprays, I have found an effective method of watering the seeds and seedlings.

Recycling is fun and saves money

The recycled 1.5 liters bottle holds just enough water for me to water most of my seedling trays without refilling. I have two sets of them that I use once the seeds have germinated.ย

It is very cost-effective, just 5 dollars / 50 kr (Swedish currency), I get a pair of these nozzle sprays - One that is good for showering the seeds and another concentrated one that I use once seedlings have germinated so I do not wet the leaves too much.ย 


I prefer bottom watering my seedlings if they are in seed trays. However, even with bottom watering, I have noticed that a few seedlings get dried much faster than the rest and need extra water.ย
