I need a good and cheap source for hardy plant trays to start my seedlings.
I have use the regular 1020 plants trays and they keep cracking ... making the water going all over.
I have found those trays below and I wonder if anybody has tried them (I'd like to know before I will buy a bunch)

Perma-Nest Plant Tray Tan 11x22x2.5

Rugged polystyrene
Will last for years
Hot and cold sterilized
Holds a seed flat, or cell insert
Dimensions: 11" x 22" x 2 1/2"

Sometimes I nest two flimsy 1020 trays together to get added support. Small cracks in convenient spots can be patched with gorilla tape or duct tape.

I try to use the flimsy trays mostly to hold smaller, lighter pots. For heavier things, I sometimes use part of a corrugated carboard box with a plastic bag liner.

Instead of spending $8 on a sturdy tray I could buy 6-7 bags of steer manure compost.
