Heated Propagators

Posted: 26/01/2015 at 11:57

Welcome Marks Veg Plot.

I would definately go for the variable temperature control. It gives you so many different options as some seeds can be very fussy.

Never grown Venus Fly Traps from seed so I hope this link helps. 

Other members will be along soon to help you out, i'm sure. There are several threads on this site regarding electric propagator so try the search facility at the top of the page and have fun reading.,d.d24

Your brandling worms or tiger worm, red wiggler etc (Eisenia fetida) will improve the soil quality immensely and provide nutrients to the plants. They do not harm the plants in any way and may even help eradicate any green/white fly and also provide disease resistance.

Answer to that question from Jeyes.

Q "Can you use Jeyes fluid to clean polycarbonate glazing in a greenhouse?"

A "we don't recommend using Jeyes Fluid for this, however, our Path & Patio Cleaner would be safe to use as long as none of the parts of your greenhouse are aluminium."
