Our lovely customers have been keeping us up to date with their 2015 growing journeys. We have put together some of our favourite journeys from the year into this quick clip
Chillis Galore has a fantastic community for chilli enthusiasts. They love to use our Vitopod Heated Propagators to start off their many chillies. This year, they have been growing Pink Tiger, Caramel Moruga, 7 Pot Madballz, Moruga Scorpion Yellow, Assam Naga, Lemon Drop, Habanero Fruit Burst and many more fabulous chillies. They have just started potting on their chillies into their Quadgrow and Duogrow Holiday Proof Planters.
These brilliant planters will keep their chillies perfect watered for up to 14 days and produce 2x larger harvests than plants produced in growbags or standard pots. Find out more about our Plant Guardians in our quick video.
Nigel has been keeping us up to date with his fabulous #chillibabies on Twitter. We’ve loved watching these little guys thrive in his Vitopod Heated Propagator with the help of his handy propagation light, which has replicated natural sunlight for his plants, allowing him to grow the whole year around.
Seedlings can become leggy when they don’t have enough access to light, so they stretch to get closer to the light source. This uses a lot of energy so they can’t focus their energy into healthy growth, making them susceptible to pests and diseases. Find out how to prevent leggy plants using propagation lights with our Gardening Angels’ Top Tips
Expert chilli grower Dean Finlay has over 7 Deluxe Vitopod Propagators hard at work in his amazing Chilli Lab! Dean also uses his Hydropods Cuttings Propagators to start growing chillies from cuttings. The Hydropod mists the base of cuttings to reduce the risk of damping-off, drying-out and fungal infections and to speed up growth.
Anja Egeriis always produces an incredible mix of beautiful and brilliant plants. Anja has a spectacular greenhouse, packed with plants started off in her Deluxe Vitopod Electric Propagator under the watchful eye of her cats! We can’t wait to see what Anja grows in her Chilligrow Planter this year!
