Recommended small-medium hand seeder?
« on: January 31, 2014, 12:50:29 PM »
Please let me know your recommendations for a small to medium hand seeder to use in a high tunnel!  For example, for beets, spinach, and lettuce greens. 

Please include the Company Brand and Model.

Is this the sort of hand seeder you're referring to?

I'm looking for a mechanical multi-row small to medium seeder. Such as what is listed in Johnny's Select Seeds. Does anyone use them and how well do they work?

Something like these?  It would be interesting to get more feedback on the units.  The reviews for the 6 row device on the Johnny's website are mixed.
