    189 reviews

    Give your seed starting an upgrade with Bootstrap Farmer's Heavy Duty Insert Pots! Designed specially to aid in the perfect timing of planting outdoors, our 2.5” seed starter pots are USA-made from BPA-free, recyclable Polypropylene (#5) plastic that’s resistant to leaching and has ¼” drainage holes on the bottom for optimal drainage.

    When starting your seeds indoors, pre-potting them up into a larger pot before they can move outdoors ensures they are able to grow their roots freely and develop to their full potential.

    Put yourself ahead of the game with Bootstrap Farmer's insert pots. Each 2.5" pot holds enough soil for your plants as they transition from their indoor environment into their outdoor homes - all without compromising on growth.

    And don't forget about up-potting from this size. Our 5" pots allow you to give extra room for unending root development when up-potting from these smaller seed starters, so you get bigger, better plants in no time!

    Worth it

    I bought some of these 2.5 pots two years ago and they are still like new. I needed more for this year, so I didn’t hesitate to order more. Thanks for making a quality product!
