Breeding boxes for growing vegetables, flowers and plants

Of growing vegetables, flowers and plants are particularly useful. Who has little experience is not great results but the fun is no less yet. By doing makes perfect also applies here. Unfortunately, such a learning process can only for a relatively short period because the most successful cultivation of vegetables, flowers, and plants depends on growth again. Based on the type of propagator which that term is used runs approximately from March to June. But after culturing is a time of harvest which can sometimes last until autumn. Incidentally, there are also breeding tanks with heating and providing year-round opportunities.


Grow vegetables, flowers, and plants

A propagator is particularly suitable for growing vegetables, flowers, and plants. They are available in all shapes and sizes and with or without heating. A breeding tank is a trough which particular form is given to growing into seeds to smaller plants, which are then planted. The tray is used by its positive features for those seeds to make germinate quickly and the plants then grow up fast. Due to the high temperature in the container which processes are favorably influenced, and the culture is increased success.

Breeding boxes in species

The bottom of the forcing tray is thick enough to be able to carry sufficient sand for growing. In many cases, this is only a few centimeters to several decimeters. Breeding boxes need not be necessarily large. There are all those fit on a windowsill and can then possibly get a place in the kitchen. Cozy yet to see something grow up close? There will also be a good control is possible if everything goes well.

Seed Period

The best time to sow in greenhouses without specialized equipment is spring to summer. In greenhouses with unique features such as the possibility of heating, the growing season can be extended and can be sown even in the winter.


Planting and repotting

Most types of seed must be at least a centimeter apart. Only then will they have enough space to germinate and the germ can develop into a small plant. Prevent dehydration by sufficient water. The plants should be repotted only when they are big and vigorous enough otherwise not they make it. Reporting the plants should therefore not happen too soon. They have, after all, in a different place can grow. A rule of thumb here is that a plant should be about five centimeters high, but this is of course also dependent on the type of plant.

Not too deep

Small seeds are sown less dark than large seeds. Some seeds, called lightkeepers, must be shown very shallow. If seeds are planted too deep in the ground, it may take long before they arise. Beautiful seeds can be better for the sowing first mixed with dry sand so they can be better divided over the ground.

Special kind propagator

A particular type of greenhouse has no bottom and consists of a sloping trough on two sides with a light-transmitting cover. The sides of the container are then made for example of double-walled plastic sheets of polycarbonate having a thickness of sixteen millimeters. These provide an insulating effect. Extra insulation can bubble wrap used. The lid of such a container can consist of safety glass of at least four millimeters. Because of the sloping sides, the cover can well absorb light.

Place the propagator

It is better to put a seed tray in a sunny place, preferably with sloping sides to the south. In this way, as much as possible, light can be collected. It must thereby be ensured that there is no shadow cast on the tank by buildings or trees or bushes and that this occurs as little as possible.


Proverbs and sayings

As on so many issues also exist concerning plant and harvest a few proverbs and sayings like:

  • Something or not is received well. (Be welcomed by the recipient.)
  • Who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. (Those who do evil will there ultimately to bear the brunt.)
  • It is hard to find. (It is rare.)
  • Who will reap must slow first? (You have to do something if you want to get some.)
  • As you sow so shall you reap? (You will pay to work.)
