This is a common mistake. If you are placing your heated propagator in a greenhouse or polytunnel consider how much sun each side receives and place your propagator accordingly.

Try to avoid draughty areas because draughts will make your propagator have to work harder, using more electricity to increase the temperature after every blast of cold air.

If possible you should hang your propagator’s thermostat, some have hanging loops.
