I love those as they are easy for small plots and beginner gardener. I agree with the higher cost.
Thanks for the nice ppst!

I don’t know who invented seed tape, but that person deserves a gold star. If you’re not familiar with it, seed tape is tissue-thin biodegradable paper, usually about an inch wide, that has seeds embedded in it.
There are several benefits to using seed tape:
- The seeds are optimally spaced for plant growth so that you don’t need to thin.
- No thinning means less waste.
- No thinning means less work.
- It’s easier to plant tiny dark seeds since you won’t accidentally pinch extras out of the package, nor lose them in the soil, being unsure how many you actually sowed.
There are two downsides to using seed tape (or wanting to use it). There is a limited selection of vegetables — and varieties — that are available. Commonly, carrots, radishes, beets, and some salad greens (like lettuce and spinach) can be purchased in seed tape.
