The Guardian - Vitopod Review

For hints and tips have a look at our propagation guide. You can also see how to get the best from a heated propagator and the advantages of using an electric propagator.

The Vitopod electric propagator delivers better germination rates, more effctive 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 propagator is accurate to within 1C and it can be set between 5°C and 30°C, so you can provide the temperature required by your particular plants. 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 stable, gentle temperature control results in higher germination rates, faster growth and stronger plants.

Even heat

The Vitopod delivers heat evenly so every seed tray receives the same level of heat. This even heat means that propagation success rate is higher because all of the seedlings or cuttings receive the correct temperature. Other electric 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.

Humidity control

The humidity vents in the Vitopod propagator lids and sides allow you to release the condensation that builds up without removing the whole lid which would waste electricity and expose the plants to too much cold. High levels of condensation can lead to seeds, young plants and cuttings rotting. This is especially a problem at higher propagation temperatures.

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

Excellent customer Service Review by CliveM
Quality
The Vitopd has not really been tested yet, but it assembled easily, looks good, and I am sure it will prove invaluable next winter.
It arrived with a little bit of damage in transit, and with a few screws missing. An email to Greenhouse Sensations got the problems sorted within a couple of days. (Posted on 02/06/2018)
Love it Review by Sam
Quality
Why on earth did I put up with the Stewart propagator for the last 5 years I don't know. My new Vitopod has helped me germinate some awkward seeds since I got it. I love the accurate temperature regime it gives.
I put the plug on a timer so that between 10am and 2pm it switches off as during the day it can get very warm in the propagator (Posted on 01/06/2018)

I bought a Vitapod propagator and it is a really good example of a propagator, sturdy base and panels, really good quality control unit.

So Excellent customer service as well! (Posted on 01/06/2018)

Can't fault them Review by Jane
Quality
Ordered a large propagator. Due to adverse weather conditions I was advised by Greenhouse Sensation that the product would not be delivered when promised, something that does not happen often. Weather improved and the propagator arrived, good customer service. Choice of propagators is good and the one I chose can have lights fitted at a later date, again useful as sometimes you want/need time to decide what you may deem necessary. I cannot fault them on their products or customer service. (Posted on 01/06/2018)

Well designed Review by Walker
Quality
This is my second propagator. This an extremely well designed product that arrived in good order
My first one has lighting, timed to give extended daylight hours morning and night. The new one does not require this luxury as daylight hours are extending. The second one is proving it's worth, providing frost protection until I can resort to using the greenhouse. (Posted on 01/06/2018)
Propagator is well made Review by Jason
Quality
The propagator is well made and puts together straight forward. I have it up and running now in my green house. It hasn’t been able to get to temperature (23 degrees) as the current outside ambient temperature is -2, with the green house temperature at +5. The propagtor has managed to remain steady at +20 so should still be fine. Due to return to milder temperature this week so it should raise to the set +23. All in all a very nice bit of kit. Arrived within a couple of days and very well packaged. (Posted on 01/06/2018)
Excellent products and great customer service Review by Clare
Quality
Excellent products. I went the whole hog and bought the 3 tier large vitapod with lights. Not cheap but a superb piece of kit.
I really wish that I’d bought one last year instead of the Stewart propagators that I bought.
The unit is very well made and feels like excellent quality.
Customer service has been excellent with a slightly less than perfect delivery. (Posted on 01/06/2018)

Standard propagator Review by Howardthegardener
Quality
As a keen professional gardener I had been a fame of the Ward propagators many years ago, when I saw the Vitopod at an exhibition was impressed with the size and quality of build. Its performance is outstanding. Took 150 cuttings of variegated geraniums and 150 successfully rooted! Seeds germinate very well and look forward to using it as a mini greenhouse for warmer loving plants in what is only a frost free greenhouse in winter. Best product i have seen in a while.

Excellent Review by Alan Howard
Quality
I bought 2 double deluxe ones last year, after the disaster I had with my seeds in 2014, I had great success with them in 2015 with hundreds of beautiful plants, and I started off my seeds for this year last weekend and already I have seedlings coming up, they really are amazing, I use mine in the greenhouse I was worried that in the height of summer when I've finished with them the heat in the greenhouse might wreak the finish but they are still looking brand new, the plastic is not cloudy no faults what so ever. Over winter I even tried growing cactus and carnivorous plants from seed something that I have always struggled with, not with this it worked perfect. They have already paid for themselves with the money saved from doing my own plants instead of buying them in. If mine broke next week without doubt I would buy them again. (Posted on 05/09/2017)
My seeds love it Review by Alasdair Macqueen
Quality
This was a toss up to buy a cheaper alternative or spend the extra cash for the proper job. I bought the large size with 2 extensions.

The build quality is excellent and it is easy to put together. It does take up some space but tomato seeds are through in 10 days, salad leafs in 6 days, so it does what it says. The temperature controller is robust and easy to use, so overall based on the first 32 weeks this seems to be excellent value for money.

We have had the one tray heaters before that work for one year, but never seem to be the same next year.

Yes this is a lot more expensive, but surely your plants deserve the best start in their short lives, producing stronger healthier plants that produce more fruits and produce. (Posted on 29/08/2017)
A good service and a super product Review by Lorna Lumsden
Quality
A good service and a super product. I was sceptical prior to ordering as I thought it was rather expensive but you get what you pay for and it is obvious that much thought has gone into the design followed by high quality kit so easy to see where the value is incorporated. Good value and really a great thing to work with. One word of caution. It is quite high with more than one layer of lifts so a low bench is recommended.or it becomes awkward to access from the top. But seeds are certainly growing well in the easily controlled environment. I bought this because I originally bought the cuttings propagator with the water spray kit - which is also great. Altogether very happy. (Posted on 29/08/2017)
Brilliant Review by Susan
Quality
I have had 2 large Vitopods for at least 5 years. They are very strong and put up with my rather careless handling ( this quality does make them a little heavy) Raising plants is now so easy. I never have to worry about the night time temperature which I have monitored using my greenhouse thermometer and is spot on regardless of outside conditions. The double height is perfect for young tomatoes etc. In summer it stores away easily. I cannot recommend too highly, if they seem a little expensive that is far outweighed by the potential life, and for me, confidence in the very accurate temperature control. It is difficult to describe the quality do try to see one I guarantee you will be impressed. (Posted on 22/08/2017)

Great product and A1 customer service Review by RichardG
Quality
I don't usually write reviews for things I've purchased online, but in this case I feel I should.

I ordered the double-height, large, heated, Vitopod with lights. It arrived very quickly, but the lighting units were damaged in transit, GS sent replacements rapidly (top marks for their no-quibble customer service).

I've been through several cheap propagators in the past and they invariably fail: electrics die, covers yellow and crack at the slightest knock. However, I've been using my Vitopod for two weeks now. The build-quality is excellent and robust and I have confidence that this will stand-up to the rigors of use (the acrylic is thick and strong).

Like other reviewers I'm also glad I got the larger unit. The double height extension is ideal for growing-on tomato and courgette seedlings in larger 9-12cm pots. Tall root-trainer germinated beans also fit well in this unit, giving them a head-start early in the season.

I'm delighted with my Vitopod and the satisfaction of using a well-made, solid product definitely justifies its price tag in my opinion. (Posted on 07/08/2017)
