Propagation gifts for gardeners
Propagation is one of the most rewarding processes in gardening and requires great skill. Propagation is the process of sowing seeds into soil in a controlled environment which is optimal for growing young plants. The aim of propagation is to germinate seedlings and raise them to be robust young plants ready to plant outside. Propagation can be executed in the spring to raise plants ready for when the last frosts have ended.
Propagation is usually carried out in specially designed propagators. Propagators come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some propagators are electrically heated and some are simply heated by the warmth of the sun. These make fantastic gifts for gardeners especially when combined with seed collection gift sets. We have put together some of our favourites down below.
Potting gifts for gardeners
Potting up is a process carried out after successful germination and propagation. This part of gardening takes great skill and patience to master. Potting up commonly involves separating large seedlings into individual pots to grow into larger plants. During this process much care is needed not to damage the roots and replace soil around them without damage.
Once this is complete the young plants are watered and preferably placed in a greenhouse. Because potting up takes a lot of care and skill it is best carried out on a satisfactory potting work surface or tray. These are easily obtainable from retailers and make great gifts for gardeners. We have put a selection of these below.
