Soil Warming Cables For Better Seed Propagation
We have replaced the Parasene range with Bio-Green due to quality issues we were experiencing with the Parasene units.
A soil warming cable is the ideal way to propagate seeds and cuttings on a greenhouse bench or in a cold frame. The soil in the greenhouse takes time to warm up naturally: with a soil warming cable you are able to plant earlier and raise better specimens. Can be used in conjunction with our Soil Warming Cable Thermostat.
A simple frame can be constructed from wood to form the propagating area required, which is them lined with polythene. The cable is laid onto a 5cm of sharp sand (horticultural) and covered with a further 5cm of sand.
We use these cables and fleece to start our seedlings in February. You don't need expensive greenhouse heaters, we don't use anything else.
We stock these soil warming cables in 3 different sizes, please use the 'Size' tab above to select the required one.
Lengths: 6m (50watt), 10m(100watt) and 25m(320w)
