Windowsill Propagator / Seedling Nursery
The Fab Four from Garland is a complete nursery designed to be easy to use, from the novice gardener to the seasoned greenthumb. Its four vented propagators mean you can grow a variety of plants in one go, or to germinate seedlings before planting out. It fits perfectly onto a windowsill which means that your plants will receive an adequate amount of light as well as the heat from the propagators base. The heated base contains a 10 watt carbon fibre element for even heat distribution and is designed to increase the temperature by 8º.
Windowsill Propagators For Growing Wheatgrass
Once wheatgrass seeds have sprouted, they need to be transferred to a tray of moist compost to grow on, these windowsill propagators make the ideal base for young wheatgrass shoots. Simply fill the tray part with a 1cm deep layer of compost and spread the sprouted wheat seeds across the surface. The wheatgrass will need to be kept in the dark a couple of days while growing, so simply place a tea towel over the propagator's lid. Remember to check twice a day and keep the shoots and tea towel moist at all times. After about 2 days when the shoots have reached 3-4cm, they are ready to be placed back in the light. Remove the tea towel and place on a windowsill for a further few days until the grass begins to fork. You can re-use the propagator again and have multiple crops of fresh wheatgrass each month. Wheatgrass is full of nutrients and vitamins and is perfect for making your own healthy green juices or smoothies, or mixing in as part of a salad.
