Heated propagator, early seed sowing – or not in my case!
Well, my parcels have finally arrived just in time for the weekend, nothing too exciting but the heated propagator and seeds need to be put straight to use to try and make up some of the time lost so far this year.
The heated propagator I went for is a garland super7, I went for this one as it’s got a lot of good reviews online, great price and fits beautifully on the windowsill. honestly, it’s worth checking out.for sub £30 delivered
I’ve included an Amazon affiliate link below, it doesn’t cost you any more to purchase it via the link but I will get a small kickback to help keep the dream alive 🙂 Also if your an Amazon Prime user you can get it next day which is great.
One of the items was x50 peat free pockets I only ordered these due to the ease of use, and the fact that I’m so far behind schedule I felt I could justify them. As they contain no peat there more environmentally friendly than the Peat filled equivalent, ideally, in 2019 i’ll use only recycled matter and containers. one thing to be aware of with these is that due to their size they can dry out quickly so it’s worth keeping an eye on them especially once your seedlings start to become established.
And lastly, I needed to make some tags to label up the variety that is planted. A Milk bottle was sacrificed and quickly made the 7 tags I needed for each container in the propagator
Also, my seeds arrived, Typically while I was away for a few days.
Thankfully a quick message to the wife and a couple of instructions on what I want to be planted and the seeds went in without my help (30/01/2018) a whole 4 weeks later then I did back in 2014 my most prolific year. but I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to share down the line.
All the best
