Homamade light box

This time of year plants can struggle due to lack of light and heat, one simple solution is a homemade light box.
Keeping it nice and simple all you need to do is pop to B&Q and purchase a watertight container/box and a small strip light.
Simply attach the light to the underside of the container lid, you might have to cut away at one corner of the container to make the channel for the power cord.
One tip is to lay a towel in the bottom, this stops water build up which can make your plant leaves turn yellow. The light box will provide you with enough heat and light to give your plants a great start to life insuring they are fit and healthy for spring.
You could line your container with silver foil for better reflective lighting, but I have found its not needed.
