Plastic Free Gardening Rubber Root Trainer


In Stock




These rubber root trainers are great for growing healthy sweet peas, beans, trees from seed or plug and any other plants that are sensitive to root disturbance or require deep root beds. The root trainer creates a long, thin root run which these varieties thrive off and will give them every chance of success when planted out. They are also brilliant for root cuttings.

These root trainers are made from fair trade, FSC certified natural rubber from renewable sources and are completely plastic-free. Unlike the plastic root trainers you often see, these trays are robust, flexible and long-lasting. That means less waste which is better for the environment!

Size: 8 cell tray (3.5cm x 3.5cm x 12cm cells)

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

The rubber root trainers are very sturdy. It is a bit of a fiddle to join them together. The little black tabs are very flexible so bend in all directions other than lock in. I do have concerns these little tabs may break off with more use. However they are now looking after my sweet pea seeds so will see how they perform when the sweet peas need planting out.

Having had flimsy plastic root trainers shaped like this in the past, I was interested to trial the natural rubber version to see how many seasons' use I could get out of them; They appear to be very sturdy- I'm interested to see if plantlets can be removed without damage when the time comes. I'm hoping they work as well as the proprietary version without the awful plastic waste. Time will tell.
