Temperature control very accurate. Easy to assemble but fixing method could be more robust for double size. Overall a good product.
Had vita pod for several weeks during bad weather. It performed well and all seeds and seedlings doing well. Wish I had bought it sooner and had purchased larger one
Ten great things about the Vitopod
1. Reduce energy use – only heat the plants, not the entire greenhouse. Everyone knows that’s cheaper!
2. Don’t lose your prized plants to the winter – protect the tender plants you spent all summer caring for. If you choose the heated Vitopod you can select any temperature between 5°C – 30°C and keep your plants warm without ‘cooking their roots’.
3. Extend your growing season – keep growing when the weather starts to turn cold by putting even tall plants in a double or triple height Vitopod to protect them from the harsh conditions. Start the season earlier without worrying that the spring might be late - if you start early and spring arrives late just add extra height to the Vitopod and your plants will continue to grow without running out of ‘head’ space.
4. Propagate more successfully – precise temperature control, even heat distribution, large vents for humidity control and a perfect height all combine to make it easy for you to raise great plants from seeds and cuttings.
5. Reduce your clutter – Vitopod helps you propagate, harden off and protect plants through the winter – just one product for three jobs. And it all flat packs away for those rare moments when you’re not using it. That’s great news for your minimalist family members.
6. Look gorgeous – its crystal clear good looks mean that Vitopod looks the part even in the most stylish of homes, so even non-gardening family members won’t mind you using the Vitopod indoors.
7. Stay beautiful – Vitopod is resistant to UV deterioration so it won’t yellow and it’s made from a durable, slightly flexible material so that there’s less risk of it breaking when you drop it on the greenhouse floor or patio.
8. Save money – buy just one product for propagation, hardening–off and winter protection, use less heating and raise plants from seeds and cuttings instead of buying expensive young plants ready for planting out.
9. Have more fun – many gardeners and growers agree that starting plants from cutting or seed is the most rewarding aspect of growing.
10. Raise plug plants more successfully – BBC Gardening expert Steve Brookes recommends that even plug plants should be placed in a protective environment like the Vitopod before planting out so that they can be gradually introduced to life outdoors.

Tried & Tested Propagators
This is a larger-than-average Propagator for anyone hoping to grow lots of plants this season. One of the many benefits of this model is that the temperature is controlled by a thermostat, providing control over the heat to within 1 degree C. The range of temperature is between 5 and 30 degrees C, meaning it is possible to create the perfect growing environments for whatever it is you are growing. In addition, it is possible to purchase lights which fit above the plants to speed up the time it takes for them to grow. These lights are housed in a nanotech enhanced reflector that reflect 99 per cent of the light and defuse it deep into the leaves. Practicality 5***** Durability 5***** Value 4****

Tried & Tested - Seed sowing equipment
This is a very professional looking propagator, but ideal for the amateur too, providing plenty of space for all those veggie seedlings this spring. In fact it can fit 12 half seed trays and 55 pots. That's a lot of growing space. One of the best aspects of this propagator is the thermostat enabling you to control the temperature anywhere to 1 degree between 5 and 30 degrees. The sensor maintains the correct temperature for you meaning you haven't got to constantly adjust it. You can buy additional height extensions to allow you to grow taller plants. If you have a smaller space there is a half size propagator too. Practicality ***** Durability **** Value ****
