Plunge Trays

Plunge Trays form the basis of one of the easiest and most traditional forms of propagation. Plunge Propagation involves filling a deep Plunge Tray - our trays are 6 inch / 15cm deep - with horticultural sand. Keeping the sand damp, you can then 'plunge' cuttings directly into the sand where there roots will form. It's important for successful propagation that the sand is kept damp - and remember, cuttings taken in the cooler months may take months to root, where summer cuttings normally just take a couple of weeks. Other cuttings that thrive from being propagated in this way include some short lived perennials and silver leafed plants. To aid propagation in Plunge Trays you can add heat - such as a soil warming cable.

Fill with washed, horticultural coarse sand, and turn it into a heated propagating tray by adding a soil warming cable.
Fill with soil and compost and create a deep growing area to cultivate a huge rang of shallow rooted crops.
