George Ward Ltd's plastic propagator is 22 1/2 in long by 11 1/2 in wide and 9 3/4 in high. Too big for the average window sill, it shares our utility room with two cats, who must be wondering if they are about to star in a Jack and the Beanstalk production.
A simple propagator can be made in a few minutes for a few pence. The suggested price of pounds 62.95 for this sophisticated version includes a fitted plug and six seed trays, but no tags to identify what has been planted. Two admirably detailed pages of instructions would have been even more useful if they had identified a few plants that flourish in a heated propagator's micro-climate.
