replacement propagator lids

My trusty aged electric propagators need new plastic lids. I cannot locate any, I live in France, tried google. Can anyone help, please.

    Is this any use? Getting it delivered to France might be tricky though.

    Worst case you should be able to get hold of twin-wall polycarbonate sheeting that you could cut to size - which is easy with a hacksaw
    The lid on an ancient propagator of mine went yellow over the years, then cracked, then bits snapped off and it was a gonner. I found the polycarb sheet worked well
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • My ancient, large, square Propagator lid succumbed and there were no new ones like it. The replacement was rigged up from plywood, laths and bubble wrap  and has worked well for a good few years. I made another replica this year, fresh and ready to go in the spring :)

    You have probably sorted this but now, but... I sent off for a replacement Stewart propagator lid and what I got was a rather flimsy affair, so if you can source one and you want something more solid make sure you know what you are getting. For Stewart, there is an 'essentials' one which is 'thermoformed ' which is the more flimsy one. I think the 'hard' one is ' injection moulded crystal styrene' one. They have them on but they are hideously overpriced. I take it Point Vert and the like don't sell them...?
