Tool or Gardening Product

Germination Station
A heat mat makes starting vegetable and flower seeds easier and faster. Using a protective enclosure keeps germinating seedlings moist and warm. While you can devise a makeshift chamber or cover, there are good commercially available trays and domes. A germination station with heat mat costs from $23 to $50.
