Hi,  I just bought one of these with the profits from this year to make planting easier next year:
http://www.standnplant.com/seeder.htm
I have a JAG planter but found that replacing seeds that did not germinate left me bending and stooping and sore.  The Stand N Plant should solve this problem.  I know I could have made something similar myself but these folks are farmers trying to make a living and I'd like to support them.  I'll let you know how I like it!
Regards,

Jim

  A very simple design and easy to make at home if you don't want to buy one.    Wink

  It looks like a much better plant transplanter than a seeder.  I would have to try it though to be sure.   Grin

I'm hoping it will work for seeds and small transplants like onion sets (appears to on the website).  I have a Hatfield Transplanter but my primary use will be filling in where seeds failed to germinate.

I just make a trench, and use a piece of 1" pvc to drop the seed(s) in with. I have an old concrete rake 2' wide and just drag it down the row to cover seeds. Add a spray of water and it's ready.

Looks like it would work, however it is a bit pricey.

For my money, which is something I may do next year, is to just use some pvc pipe. It may take a little longer but will be a lot easier on the back.

I got one awhile back, works ok for big seeds I done watermelons, cantaloupe, and squash with it. Anything to keep from bending over is a plus.. Also got one of Poke-a-lot Planter that the jar screws on the end havent tried it yet...

I don't bend over so well anymore, and the wind was blowing my seed out of the furrow.  Got a piece of 3/4" pvc glued on a bell reducer for 1 1/2" pipe, and it worked fine.  Just drag it down the middle and drop the seed at the right spacing.  Little slow and awkward at first, but soon got the hang of it.  Now I am waiting for my Jang seeder to be delivered tomorrow.  It should make things a lot quicker and eaiser.

I have both stand-n -plant units, love them. The pvc one does a great job of planting onion plants, am going to try it on onion sets this fall. The other I have planted everything with this year, even potatoes.
