This is a question for those of you who have experience growing in Earthboxes. Do you find the plastic mulch covers that the Earthboxes come with to be a help or a hindrance? The reason I ask is because I have a feeling that the plastic mulch covers are smothering my seedlings that don’t find their way through the holes I cut out for them.
Thanks for letting me know you experiences.
I would not use the plastic covers unless you are trying to germinate seeds for quick greens. I found the covers not to be effective and yes, same as you I’ve lost seedlings with the covers on. I no longer use the covers.
