Sow your seeds or raise cuttings in a propagator and you get a head start on the season by emulating ideal planting conditions, instead of waiting for the soil to warm up. Seeds and cuttings need heat, light and moisture. Different plants need different heat levels for germination, and tender seeds and cuttings can’t cope with fluctuations in temperature. Propagators help give the right balance of these things to ensure successful growth by taking the guesswork and the vagaries of nature out of the equation. Progators come in a range of styles and sizes but alll hav ethe same objective - to create a micro-climate ideally suited to supporting seeds through the fragile process of germination and helping them get the best start which will mean they have the best chance of developing into healthy productive plants.
