I have a super 7, windowsill one. It has a constant temperature and is excellent for starting plants off early like Aubergine's, chilli's and peppers all of which need a long growing season. I also start toms amd some flowers in the heated propagator.
It's usually only used March/April but I like to grow stuff from seed. I then sow stuff in unheated propagator's.
In terms of time, effort and cost, if growing a small number of plants, it's more economical to buy seedlings in April/May or go for a combination of both, sow some and buy in different varieties to the one's sown.
