We created a seedling raiser that was simple to move around, light and compact for storage and was efficient to allow plenty of sunlight whilst keeping the seedlings safe from the wind. The end result was a brilliant contraption that worked a treat.

Ideally, this multi-purpose seedling raiser / food dehydrator can be manufactured from easily sourced material that you may have on hand or sourced from local recycling areas.
