1. I've used soil blocks...

For the past few years. Ive not noticed a big difference in growth or health, but I love how little waste there is. Had good success with them last year. Blogged about it... http://coopandcottage.blogspot.com/2019/03/seed-starting-systems-peat-pots-to-soil.html?m=1

2. Thank you, that helps.

I was going to use the 2"x2" cells in a tray, when I stumbled across the article in the OP. I may give the soil blocks a try this year.

Nice blog, by the way. Very helpful.
