Soil Warming Cables For Better Seed Propagation

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.

Very good reliable product

This was easy to set up and is working a treat. Seedlings are popping up and there's nearly a 100% success rate. And my house has not been taken over by plants as it's all happening in the tunnel. Only downside: because I went for the biggest size, the propagator is huge and too heavy to be moved so it will have to be dismantled once I'm not using it during the summer. Pain!

Quite fiddly to get the correct spacing as the cable had been packaged in such a way that it wouldn't lay flat. Maybe Quickcrop could design a cheap plastic grid that the cable could be laid into like underfloor heating?

What area do your cables cover I read 3 " apart so the first cable is 1.5" from the side of the box and the last one is also 1.5" from the other side of the box. ???? What is the most efficient way to use them? I am wondering if a longer cable or two shorter cables are more energy efficient? How much electricity does each cable length require to run??
Answered by Andrew
on December 17th, 2015
Hi Grannie. The should be 3 inches apart so yes, the cable will be 1.5 in from the side of the box. The most efficient way to use them is with a thermostat as they only turn on when the temp falls below the required level. The length of the cable doesn't effect the power used so if you are building a single bench I would use one cable. I am not sure how much each cable costs to run but we have 6no. 8x4foot benches (a lot of cable) and it costs us about €200 a year for very extensive growing. I would suggest your bill will be nowhere near that. I hope this helps. If you need any more help please feel free to call the office on 01 524 0884. Andrew.

Can I use this kit, but with a polythene cover over the damp sand-base(to prevent high humidity and condensation)& in conjunction with fluorescent light units, all covered by an insulated cover to bring on plants after germination?
Answered by Andrew
on March 31st, 2015
Hi Tom. Yes you could place a polythene cover over the sand and do what you suggest.

How many degrees does this heating cable raise the soil temperature?
Answered by Andrew
on March 16th, 2015
Hi Chloe The soil warming cable will raise temp to approx 22 degrees but this depends on the temperature in the tunnel and how close you place the elements. If you place the element closer you can get a higher temp. I hope this helps. Andrew

How do the deep roottrainers do on a heated bed using your cable. Do they warm up as well given that the rootrainer cells are suspended in the plastic frame?
Answered by Andrew
on February 25th, 2015
Rootrainers will not do so well on a heated bed as the modules aren't in contact with the soil. You would be better using the 84 cell plant trays. Rootrainers are best used indoors to germinate the seed which once sprouted can go into the tunnel or greenhouse.

The Ac mains supply is 220-240 Volts. It is a regular 3 pronged plug . Is that what you wanted to know?
