- Amazing Review by Chris
The propagator is brilliant. I've just used it to germinate chilli's at the moment - early days use. I'm looking forward to over-wintering plants.
The thermostat works really well. It keeps the temp to within 0.5 deg , which is amazing - I think the heating element is about 100 watts, so it can cope with varying ambient temps.
All in all, I'm very happy with it.

- Outstanding Review by Chris
The Vitopod is outstanding for using little electricity but for providing a constant temperature which can be set with a high degree of accuracy... I have started so many different things off successfully this year ( and it has been officially one of the coldest springs for 50 years) and at no time did I need the 3Kw heater on in the greenhouse. Terrific product - so good in fact I now have four of them with the extra layers !!

- The best Review by Michael
- Total pleasure to deal with Review by Susie
I am totally delighted with my heated Vitopod propagator. I purchased the large double size plus an extra height layer after doing considerable research on it online. It really is as good as everyone said it was. Plants that were struggling to germinate with the terrible weather we've had are now bursting into life. The space available in the large double is extremely good and the adjustable vents mean I can regulate the humidity as required. I just wish I'd bought one sooner! A first class product all round.

- Good to find something with some height Review by T Downe

- Superb, I now have 4! Review by D F
Top class service and delivery time. I cannot speak anymore highly of this company.
This is the fourth propagator of this type I now have in my greenhouse which speaks volumes of what I think of them. They are by far the most efficient and easy to operate of any propagator I have used over the last forty years.
I raise exhibition leeks and onions this time of the year and by using further tiers to accommodate the increasing height of the plants I am able to keep the heating costs down in my greenhouse.
The ability to adjust the heat settings allows for even the hardest to germinate seeds to be propagated with ease. Superb piece of equipment. (Posted on 20/12/2012)

- Exemplary Company To Deal With!! Review by Chris @WF1
- I must write with the utmost praise for Greenhouse Sensation whose customer service & care is exemplary. I wanted my delivery to take place on a specific day a week after I placed the order - it happened as requested. The courier damaged the base of one of my Vitopods due to a lack of care. Although the damage was slight and purely cosmetic, Greenhouse Sensation immediately offered a replacement saying "Your Vitopod should have been treated with care and delivered to you in pristine condition." As far as I am concerned the company is faultless and to be commended and recommended. You can trust them implicitly and buy with total confidence. (Posted on 08/12/2012)

- Just Perfect.. Review by Chilli Grower
can't fault it, I,ordered a double height vitopod and received the product within 48 hours..The bad weather this year,and being so cold,my chillies refused to germinate in my unheated greenhouse,Searched the net,and found this site.. I put it together within 30-40 mins...
I'm in the process of ordering an extra height (can't find any extras on this site something that could be addressed!! ),,as I need to get the chillies to catch up, I have wasted several weeks waiting for the seed to germinate.
Now my chillies are getting close to the roof..
I have used the vitopod during the summer months as to keep perfect growing conditions and give them the boost they need by keep by keep them warm and constant temperature during the night!
Will recommend this product,and service,
A little bit expensive,but you get what you pay for. (Posted on 06/07/2012)
- Expensive but works well. Review by Dovercourt Bob
- Very prompt delivery, relatively easy to assemble even with arthritic hands. The heating is consistent across the whole base and keeps very much to the set temperature. I have two slight criticisms: although well-made, I felt the sides were a little too flexible on the large propagator but would be okay on the small one. Also I felt it was slightly over priced but does the job well, I would recommend it if you are not to price conscious!. (Posted on 02/05/2012)
- Lived up to expectations Review by Liz
- Ordered the vitapod after a lot of deliberation because of the cost, ordered the large with extra height. I am glad I did, it is already full of seeds and cuttings, and my tomato plants already need the extra height. Very well made strong, and design is very smart. To my suprise it arrived the next day. Very pleased with the vitapod and will recommend to my family. (Posted on 23/04/2012)

- Best Propagator I have seen Review by gram_sland
- Ordered a large size - double height and expected delivery in 2 days - came next day. Superb start!. Unpacked it and built it up and it really does look the part. Now in use and it is excellent - seedlings coming on a treat. The digital temperature control is very accurate and easy to see and set. The vents are plentiful and large enough to give real control. Not cheap, but well worth the money. Wish I had one years ago. (Posted on 09/03/2012)
- brilliant bit of kit Review by Pat Ferguson
I've had my double length, double height Vitopod propagator for a while now, think this will be it's third season. I wouldn't be without it. The thermostat is extremely accurate, ventilation is very good and the acrylic sides/lids are clear and strong even though it's been in the greenhouse for two summers, whereas the plastic covers on the cheap unheated propagators I bought from my local garden center two years ago are yellowed and so brittle they've cracked.
This is not a cheap propagator but it will last years longer than the majority of alternatives on the market.
Very well made and excellent customer service from Greenhouse Sensation when I bought it (the first had been damaged in transit - they replaced it immediately without hesitation). (Posted on 26/02/2012)

- Fantastic Review by Tiki
- I've been using my large, double height heated Vitopod for a full year now. I firmly believe it's the best propagator i've ever had and I wish I'd found it earlier. I have two other large propagators made by a different manufacturer that aren't half as good and I can't wait till they become "unservicable" so that I can replace them with another vitopod. Not only is my vitopod used as a propergator but as a heated mini greenhouse within my greenhouse. It's saved me a fortune in heating costs and more that payed for itself over the really hard beginning of 2011. (Posted on 06/01/2012)
- Vitopod Review by DM
”I have purchased and use regularly two Vitopod propagators, also Quadpots for growing tomato and chilli plants.
Greenhouse sensation are very good at what they do, they have excellent products on a 1st class website and they answer any queries and offer advice on the best way to grow vegetables.
The Hydroponic propagators and systems are also excellent and I highly recommend them”

- Expensive but very good product (Posted on 30/11/2011)
- Just what I have been looking for. Review by Alan
I have just received my large heated quadgrow. Why didn't I buy one before now?
I had been using a rival large propagator for a few years but it has now given up the ghost so I bought a large Vitopod.
What a difference; the Vitopod is in a different league.The quality is superb, the base is solid and looks really well made. The top sections bolted together very easily and the venting arrangments appear to be very good. The thermostat is simple to set and calibrated - unlike most.
I have some banana seed that I have been advised to plant immediately as they are best when fresh. They are now soaking in water ready for planting. The little Canna Lilly root divisions I bought the other day are now all snug and warm, that should start them into life.
I can see this being very useful for tender plants through the winter and in the spring I shall be starting lots of things into life with it.
The top is made of lovely clear plastic and looks like it should last well but I shall take the precaution of putting the lid into the shed out of direct sunlight during the summer. This should prolong its life a little and stop it being in the way during the summer when greenhouse space is at a premium. It should dismantle very easily for storage as it is bolted together.

- I like everything about the Vitopod Propagator Review by K. Richardson
I have described exactly what the Vitopod is to my gardening colleagues over the years and bemoaning the fact that I couldn't find what I wanted. My main concern was lack of temperature control. Then out of the blue on the internet there it is.
It's reputation is only getting better, Broad beans (Claudia Aquadulce) sown Boxing Day, germinated in seven days, now in the cold greenhouse. Cabbage (Greyhound) and cauliflower (All year round) sown 15th January germinated in four days, and not new seed, now in frost free greenhouse. Peas (Early onward) sown in flat bottomed guttering 15th January germinated today making it five days. All at 18*C."

- Each part has been carefully designed and the fit and finish is of a very high standard Review by Hot Juan
- Each part has been carefully designed and the fit and finish is of a very high standard, this has been designed to last and will be with us for many years. I am a techie, I love gadgets so getting a gadget propagator is ideal for me. It has buttons to press and a digital display. I have taken great pleasure in telling people about it and how evenly the heat is distributed across the tray etc. (Posted on 22/09/2011)
- So good I bought 3! Review by R. Ballantyne
It’s not often I write to a company to express my opinion about a product that I buy, but on this occasion I have had such a wonderful result with the Vitopod propagator.
Over the years I have bought many heated propagator systems from warmed cable to the silver foil heated mat system, with reasonable results until I tried the Vitopod. It is really important when you sow seed that you get the temperature correct at seed level to get the optimum results, with the Vitopod you achieve this through a super accurate thermostat and enclosed environment which is totally controllable. Our success so far is with sweet peppers it normally takes us 14 days to germinate the seeds but the Vitopod has done it in 7 days, quite a success I would say.
After many years in commercial horticultural I would highly recommend the Vitopod propagator to the amateur market, I believe in the product that much, I have ordered another one today (that’s 3 this year).

- I wish I had heard about it years ago Review by D. Trentham
- The seeds that I planted germinated very quickly, and already the plant-lets are forming a good root system.
