it's what everybody else uses. Isn't heat tape an American thing?

Flexwatt is a USA prouduct so people here use either heat cable (parasene soil warming cable) or heat mats/strips whichever the individual chooses.

So either is fine to use, I think cable works out cheaper but I don't use it because I like strips myself and I'm one of these people where if something can go wrong it will so I could virtually guarantee if I had cable it'd go kaput and make all my racks cold lol.

Like I say heat mats/strips are fine but soil warming cable is another option too.

Yep me too Rachel, much prefer my matts, plus I think they are easier to install as you don't have to fiddle making a groove for the cable to sit in.

Flexwatt is an American thing, heat strips are the uk equivalent.
