Build Your Own Heated Propagating Bench
By Angie, Mar 1 2013 05:31PM
I have been managing very well for the last few years with Super 7 window-sill heated propagators, but I always end up doing a big shuffle of seeds and constantly having to prioritise my sowings, choose what seeds go in or out, etc.
This year I finally decided to build myself a larger propagating bench for the conservatory. I used instructions I had found on the Gardeners' World website and now have a lovely 1200 x 2400 mm propagator bench. The total cost worked out as just under £40, but hopefully it should save me a lot of money in cuttings as well as the seed sowing I mainly use the window-sill propagators for.
The instruction video can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardenersworld/video/toby_30minfix/heated_propagator.shtml.
