Building a hot propagation bed, phase two.

Our hot bed is now fully up and running in the Propagation Station, maintaining a temperature of 25-30 degrees Celsius day and night, and our tomatoes, cucumbers, chillies, courgettes, peppers and aubergines are already germinating.
About to lay soil-warming cable onto a bed of coarse sand, with the thermostat already fitted.

Soil warming cable laid and ready to cover.

Covering the soil warming cable with an inch of coarse sand.

The cable covered, and the lid of the hot bed over (made using a section of plastic from our destroyed polytunnel).

Tomato and chilli seedlings coming along, having already been germinated above the kitchen stove.
