"This is simply the best heated propagator on the market. BBC Gardeners' World magazine

Our Vitopod electric propagator has won many Best Propagator awards, so you can be confident that it provides the perfect environment.

  • Precise control - the Vitopod's precision control thermostat can be set to any 1°C between 5°C and 30°C. You can set the temperature to meet the exact needs of your seeds, cuttings or over-wintered plants. No other propagator gives such a range and such precision. The thermostat displays the actual and the set temperatures. 
  • Even heat - our Vitopod heated propagator delivers heat evenly throughout the base, so there are no hot spots or cold spots, your seeds and cuttings will germinate evenly and you will have better germination success rates.
  • Accurate temperature sensor - the Vitopod's highly sensitive temperature sensor triggers the supply of more or less heat depending on the reading, so your seeds and cuttings are always at the right temperature and you don't waste any electricity.
  • Large vents in lids and sides - for superior humidity control, so your plants don’t suffer from damping-off.
  • Height adjustable - add the extra layers to transform your Vitopod into a mini greenhouse to give plants more space. Perfect for when the weather's slow to warm up enough for planting-out and for overwintering.
  • Robust - the Vitopod electric propagator is built to last. The lids and sides are made from a robust acrylic and are treated to prevent the UV deterioration which makes other propagators turn yellow and brittle. The crystal clear lid and sides mean the Vitopod heated propagator also looks great.

Whatever you're growing, from aubergines to zucchini and agave to zinnia, you can rely on the Vitopod heated propagator to provide your plants with the ideal conditions.

To also use the Vitopod as a mini greenhouse order a double height Vitopod Propagator and you'll be able to protect your plants for longer without heating your polytunnel or greenhouse.

Ask us a question

The Vitopod electric propagator delivers better germination rates, more effective over-wintering and hassle-free hardening-off of young plants. It was designed by botanists and plant geneticists and is used by many commercial nurseries as well as amateur gardeners because the benefits are based on science. 

Precision temperature control

The temperature of the Vitopod is accurate to within 1C and it can be set between 5°C and 30°C.  This means you can provide the temperature required by the plants whether they are the most popular veg plants, heirloom varieties, super-hot chillies or exotic decoratives. 

The Vitopod propagator sensor and heater mat are always working together to keep the plants at the right temperature. When the sensor registers that the temperature has dropped below the set temperature it gently turns up the power to increase the heat without shocking the plants. When the sensor registers the temperature has increased above the set temperature it turns the heat off. 

This precision, stable temperature control results in higher germination rates, faster growth and stronger healthier plants. 

Even heat

The Vitopod delivers its heat evenly throughout the base so every seed tray receives the same level of heat. Other propagators have a heating cable in the base which results in hot spots on top of the cable and cold spots in the parts between the heating cable. The Vitopod's even heat is achieved because the heating elements are tightly packed together.

No hot or cold spots in the base means that the propgation success rate is higher because all of the seedlings or cuttings receive the correct temperature.

Humidity control

The humidity vents in the Vitopod proagator lids and sides allow for much greater humidity control. Humidity control is crucial in a propagator. Humidity levels inside a heated propagator can get very high with high levels of condensattion inside the propagator leading to seeds, young plants and cuttings rotting. This is especially a problem at higher propagation temperatures.

By opening the large vents in the Vitopod propagator gardeners can lower the humidity in the propagator quickly without having to remove the whole lid which would waste electricity and potentially expose the plants to too much cold. 

You can be confident that the Vitopod provides the perfect environment for propagating seeds, cuttings and over-wintering plants.

Heated propagators are especially useful for growing vegetables because they enable gardeners to start seeds before the air temperature has reached the temperature required by the seeds and this means plants can get off to a head start. This is especially useful if growing vegetables as seeds started earlier can be harvested sooner in the season and harvested for longer – resulting in bigger harvests.

In the past many gardeners started seeds in a heated greenhouse or on a heated bench, but with rising electricity costs this isn’t feasible anymore. A heated bench is useful, but the warmth quickly dissipates so the heater is working constantly, whereas a heated propagator has sides and a lid which retain the heat.

disappointed Review by rogerofsa

I may have been unlucky but my propagator has failed after only about 2 years

The digital control unit now reads about 20 C too high rendering the unit useless.
The company have offered to refurbish it for £40 which is not unreasonable.
However i have bought a thermostatic tube for £33 so i will stick with that for the moment.

Service rating : When I rang for help with my Vitopod the gentleman patiently explained how the temperature was maintained overnight and the effect of the ambient temperature in the greenhouse. It would have been easy to feel a fool but he was reassuring and professional.

Product : I am amazed at the speed of germination of my seeds in the Vitopod. I am sowing something everyday and because germination is so fast as yet I have not run out of space. I wish I had bought one earlier!

Well made but? Review by Rick
Quality
Bought small propagator in Nov 2013 and first used this year Jan 2014.I was concerned about the amount of condensation so I e-mailed with querie and was advised that alot of customers reduce the temp by a couple of degrees to reduce the condensation,this I did but it got me wondering if the temp was correct.I checked the temp with 3 different thermometers to find that with the thermostat set at 21 c and the temp reached was also 21c (seeds germinate 20 to25c) the actual average reading between the 3 thermometers was 19c,this would have made the temp only 17c if I had taken the advise to lower the temp a suggested in the e-mail.I have telephoned twice to advise them of my findings and they said they would ring and let me know what to do but after more than 6 weeks of waiting I have decided to write this review in order to advise future customers to check the temp of the propagator.The thermometers I used were a propergating thermometer a digital thermometer and a max/min thermometer, not very scientific I know but just my observation of the propagator.

I moved to another flat a couple of months ago. Now that the weather has gone colder, growing sprouts in Bio Snacky jars on my windowsill, I wasn't getting favourable results. So I hit upon the idea of a Vitapod. The results were fantastic. After soaking them overnight as usual, I put them in the Vitapod and they just exploded. Every time I passed by I would have a look, and each time they were bigger. They were almost growing in front of my eyes. After only a few days the final results were like nothing I had gotten before. The sprouts were bigger than I had grown before, and the tails coming off them were longer and curlier; and they were so crunchy to eat. Also, I usually buy lettuce and salad cress from ASDA, so I put them in the Vitapod, too. They too exploded in size. My salad cress grew almost twice their size in their containers. It's a fantastic piece of kit, and so aesthetically pleasing. I've got mine in my lounge. It certainly doesn't look out of place there. All I can say is: if you like to grow, get a Vitapod (Posted on 23/01/2014)

Outstanding Review by Rocco
Quality
Service rating: Absolutely first class service and outstanding products. Packaging is always of the most excellent quality. Only the web site could do with being more straight forward to navigate.

Product: I have used the Vitopod system for growing orchids for over four years and I cannot think of any other way to do so, having full control of humidity, temperature and ventilation, but the feature I like the most in the Vitopod is the fact that as the plants keep growing the height can be increased by adding further layers, and by so doing adjusts the general climate inside the pod. It takes a very little practice to achieve the perfect microclimate, but once achieved it is easy to maintain with extremely little maintenance. Obviously these pods can be used to grow any thing. I have used them in a heated greenhouse and in the house, they have been going for more than four years and still going.
Thank you

I cannot praise this propagator enough. The build quality is excellent, built to last, very sturdy and easy to maintain. The temperature and humidity control are wonderful. I grow tiny Orchid seedlings, and this propagator is an absolute godsend! Since purchasing the large Vitopod with extra height, the plants have grown amazingly well, even managing to do so in last years horrid winter. I have absolute confidence in the product, and would recommend without reservation. Greenhouse Sensation are a company with good old fashioned customer service ethics, something which is sadly lacking with most retailers today. I will be buying more products as my Orchid collection requires, and would not purchase from anyone else. I can absolutely see how this propagator has won awards, and fully deserves all the praise it has received. (Posted on 08/11/2013)

Great product but small concerns Review by patsiec
Quality
I have used bottomless pots the size of buckets in my greenhouse for years until this year when I invested in a quadgrow slim x 2 with holiday watering kit. To say I am impressed is a gross understatement. The plants in my bottomless pots have been left miles behind. Next year I will buy a further quadgrow set and forget the bottomless pots.

I also purchased a single Vitopod propagator to try it out and again was impressed. Next season I intend to buy a double propagator.
I am just a little concerned about quality. The thermostat on my propagator failed on delivery and a float valve on my holiday watering kit also failed and had I not been vigilant would have caused me to lose four large plants from my quadgrow. However I cannot praise enough the customer service of the company. The offending products were replaced at once and I received the new ones the day after I reported the failures. It’s a pity they failed in the first place.

The service was great. Good communications and fast delivery.

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.

Greenhouse Sensation are one of the best, if not the best of the internet firms I have ever dealt with. Fast, efficient, polite and friendly with good products and excellent customer service - who could want for more!

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 !!

Total pleasure to deal with Review by Susie
Quality
Without a doubt a superb company to deal with. Order was processed very quickly, packaged extremely well and despatched via courier to arrive within 48 hours of first placing the order. Their after-sales service was second to none too. I would highly recommend this company to anyone considering dealing with them. I shall certainly buy from them again as they were a total pleasure to deal with. Well Done Greenhouse Sensation :-)

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.

Great Review by Stewart
Quality
Bought as it got great reviews and now having one I know why. The way the lift off roof works rather than a dome that has walls and roof makes using the propagator so easy to use. Delivered fast and just what was ordered.

Double height large vitopod propogator Review by Jancathy

I am over the moon with my order which arrived in two days as stated and in perfect condition. It is well worth the money and easy to assemble. It keeps temperature perfectly. Although I thought it was a lot of money to pay out, it is well worth it. In this case, you definitely get what you pay for. Very, very happy and looking forward to raising loads of plants and cuttings in the future. (Posted on 21/04/2013)

Awesome piece of kit Review by Dave Gaze
Quality
The Vitopod is an awesome piece of kit being skeptical about the evenness of temp I have placed a total of 6 thermometers in the unit [plus the 1 supplied ] and they all give same reading, have given away most of my other propagators as a result but kept 1 'just in case ' . Just taken delivery of a multiple order on day requested. If pushed to find fault it would be that i did not receive notification re delivery from the courier ( but you would have to push hard ) . A total pleasure to deal with. (Posted on 18/04/2013)

Wife just loves it and it works! Outside temperature in the greenhouse last night was -1.3 degC but with the propagator covered with a layer of bubble wrap (original packaging) placed over it the internal temperature was 19.1 deg C.

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)
Simply Brilliant Review by Rural_Lass

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”

Vitopod Review by Dr Ruben Welling
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.
