Downloadable DIY Propagation Station plans


This propagation station is waist height for ease of use, and has weather-resistant UV plastic and mesh sides for ventilation. It’s possible to adapt these plans by upcycling an old barbecue frame and repurposing a disused outdoor table as the stand. An old rabbit hutch, a crate or wooden pallet can be converted into the propagation box.
