A seedling heat mat will make the growing season arrive sooner
It's been warm and sunny here for all of January up until now. I worried about the water table and snow pack and river level and now it's started raining again and snow is forcast for the next week. Suddenly I feel restless and wish I could get in the garden.
It's hard to imagine gardening unless you have a sunny room or porch. But for those of us who can't wait to start some plants, I'm thinking this heating pad looks perfect. It's 20" by 10" so it fits underneath a large seed flat. It's waterproof and made of heavy fray proof material. It will warm the soil in the flat 10 or 20 degrees above room temperature so that seed germination is faster. It comes with a 6 ft. power cord and instructions for use and also comes in larger sizes. No matter where you are, if you can't bear the thought of another month or two of winter, you might try hastening the season with this seedling heat mat.
