Working this up into something that I think will work well.

 

I think this is the best rack I have seen with mesh shelves, modular, strong, adjustable, available in various sizes and not too expensive. I think it is powder coated. Will take 10kg per shelf. Risk of rust but could just be resprayed.

This version has 7.5m run of shelves. Dimensions are .74m wide by .3m front to back. Will happily take full or half size normal seed trays.

Would be possible to mount grow lights or a watering system.

 

I would see it being used with one lot of microveg / herbs growing and eaten, and another one germinating in another lot of trays next to it - varied for each item depending on timings.

Very cool idea F. Let me know how you come along. We don’t have a greenhouse and our “from seed” stuff last year was very hit or miss... this could be interesting.

May actually run a prototype of this with some spare ikea IVAR... which I have coming out of my ears.

Progress is happening.

 

The electric reclining sofa has gone, and the shelves are up for the prototype green wall.
