Gloucestershire, United Kingdom
Hello once again. Last time I asked a question on this forum someone called Cliffo caused a bit of a stir. Hope it doesn't happen this time!
Last year I built my own propagator 1700mm x 500mm with a hinged lid covered in polythene. It is placed on the greenhouse bench which is Red Cedar. I followed the advice from Parasene and used 50mm of horticultural sharp sand above and below the soil warming cable. However, when the sand was damp, the weight was far too great for the bench and it nearly collapsed. I am looking for an alternative to sand and propose trying Perlite. I have bought 100L but before I use it in Feb, does anyone envisage any problems?
