Propagators, is it worth it?

Posted: 05/03/2016 at 22:56

You wouldnt put pricked out plants back in the propagator, there in is the problem. You can put your seeds in there, they will germinate quickly, then comes the problem of where you will put them, its ok if you have lots of warmish places to keep them. You still can't plant them out until probably early June living in north Scotland.

the other downside is if you want to grow lots, how much can you get in there, I would need one about the size of my carpet.


Propagators, is it worth it?

I have tomatoes and peppers here, sown a few weeks ago, no propagator, they are all pricked out and growing well. 

I suppose if you want to grow some exotics it would be handy but for everyday plants that I grow, veg and flowers, I don't need one.

I bought some bare roots a few years ago from Hayloft, in the Autumn, potted up and kept in the greenhouse until they had plenty of growth on them, planted out following summer. Good mulch in the Autumn.

Ways to re-use a broken plastic greenhouse

I have used the poles to make a frame and covered it in close mesh to stop cabbage whites laying eggs on cabbage plants.

LYN. KEF.  I think I know why my photos ar Aussie style.   Its to do with the rotational lock which strangely has gone missing from that band that flicks up from the bottom of the screen.    

NO !   NO. !   Don't send me down under, they'd get me mixed up with Kylie.  

Runny, if your iPad is the same model as mine, there is a slide button on the top. Next to your sound buttons. flick the on/switch to off so you see the front page with icons on it, if you slide that tiny little button it will show on the screen either a padlock or not, you need it to show ...not.

Quickest way to raise peonies from seeds please

Nice tree, looks like an explosion in a Kleenex factory.

does anyone else think that it's not a good idea to buy seeds from China?
