Seed Sowers

Having looked around the marketplace for seed sowers, just wondered what peoples opinions were on seeds sowers/precision sowers?

    But if you're selling them you look at it differently to the rest of us.

    I bought one last year: looked good on the TV screen in the garden centre advertising it. Found it was fiddly to use and it's stayed in a plant pot in the greenhouse ever since! As Little-ann says "fingers are better"

    I use an old saucer.  Put the seeds on it and then roll them carefully to the edge and into the compost.

    For some other seeds I lick my finger, take a dab of seeds and place them on the compost.
