I have just taken some cuttings of my Bay tree.
Should I put them in a heated propagator ….



The optimal soil temperature for germination is 80°F or 27°C. Measure the soil temperature to see if the "heated" propagator is necessary.

I've not needed to in the past Hywel but I tend to take the cuttings earlier in the year. are they undercover in your cacti sanctuary?

Thank you both for your advice.

Bathgate they are cuttings so don't need to germinate, just grow roots.
I'll remember for the future if I buy the seeds, thanks.

Seaburngirl they are in a shady Perspex shelter at the side of the garage. I've put them in a propagator but haven't switched it on.
