Get your seeds and seedlings off to a great start next spring with this DIY propagation unit. Joyce Russell shows you just how easy it is to make Pictures: Ben Russell


Alarge heated propagation unit is really useful for raising plants from seed in a protected environment.The taller the unit is, the bigger plants can be allowed to grow before they are hardened off and moved out.This is particularly useful in a cold spring when tender young plants like aubergines, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers may need to wait a while longer before they are transplanted out into cooler conditions.

It’s easy to make your own propagation unit. The one shown here can be placed on a bench or directly on the ground in a greenhouse. You can add a leg at each corner to raise it up if you don’t have a suitable bench – fix lengths of copper pipe for legs if you have a persistent slug and snail problem.
