Bottom heat for cuttings?

Is it true that it speeds up rooting?

    Depends on which cuttings sandyv but in general, commercial growers use bottom heat and misting for lots of types, especially clematis.  I have a heated bench and get great results (eg 100% for 12 viburnum cuttings last year) but you do have to watch for them drying out.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
