I found a plastic tray about 30x15cm and 10cm deep, filled it with straight garden soil, watered it planted all sorts of seeds (spinach, wong bok, onions, leeks, celery, brussels, romanesco). Put in a kitchen tidy bag on top of the hot water system and everything (except the celery) sprouted within 4 days. I think it has something to do with the volume of soil and heat/moisture retention. I have since bought 4 more trays and am investigating/experimenting further.
