Actually, not so much of a spring in my step after moving house this weekend, a little stiff from heavy lifting is more the case! But, Jane's review for our pot shelfgot me thinking about spring and germinating seeds around a range cooker.
Thank you Jane for your homely photo, we love the little tiles and the clay drying on the top looks intriguing!
"Shelf exactly as described, it’s solid, strong and well made. Having read reviews I bought some japanned screws in advance to fix it to the wall... Shelf already found unexpected use as heated propagator and clay drying rack! It will mainly be used for airing clean washing" - Jane
Has anyone else tried this? I would love to know your thoughts..
I have done a little research,and discovered that germination temperatures are not consistent, but average out a little higher than maybe you would expect. Maybe a little money could be saved on a heated propagator by using the residual heat from the range.
Certainly Jane is spot on, the higher rack looks like the perfect warm spot for giving seedlings a head start.
I think caution would need to be applied with the drying racks,as some Range cookers run very hot, especially if the insulation needs upgrading. I think that using the second tierwould give the right sort of heat. But in principle, this could lead to some quite exciting spring and summer blooms!
Would anyone like to give it a try?
