With my flowers and herbs I grow them in inserts, they don't have particular requirements. If I were growing peppers and tomatoes in bulk to sell, I would also use inserts for them - but less than 200-300 pepper/tomato/egg plant/tomatillo plants is manageable (for me) doing them more individually. This year I am waiting VERY patiently to start tomatoes and tomatillo ... last year I started them with the peppers and they got way out of hand before transplant time.

BTW, A 1020 tray fits about 38 (3-4 oz dixie cups) ... maybe you are thinking 10-12 oz cups?
