And this is what happens if you put your propagating tray only half on the heated mat.

Can you see that?

Exactly half the seeds have come up, the half that were on the mat!

So it really DOES pay to read instructions. Nice one for that demo, Rachel. Now get the other ones on please....

Great example of how heat helps Rachel. I wonder how long it will be before the others come up.

Ha ha. It wasn't an experiments, folks. I just have too many trays that all want to go on the mats at the same time. The one on the far side is only ever half on. I've turned the tray around now : )
