    I start of all my seeds in either the conservatory or kitchen, never had a propagator and dont put anything in platic bags. But then, I have nevrr been one for gadgets, lots of people use them.

    It depends what you want to use it for. Many perennials and hardy annuals will do just fine on a window sill, or in the conservatory, however if you want to grow more tender stuff then a heated propagator is very useful.

    I have a very old one with no thermostat and start of all my tender perennials/annuals in it.

    I have a £30 heated one I bought on-line last winter; no thermostat, but well worth it. It has 7 little trays with lids and a bit you can open once the seeds have sprouted, so the new plants don't cook. The brand is Garland.image
