Do my newly cultivated rosemary and bay tree cuttings need full sun or partial shade from afternoon sun?

I am in central victoria and have just cultivated these cuttings from their trees into 10-15cm pots with the small ones 3 to a pot and the large ones in their own pot.

Answer: Hi Patrick,
The new cuttings would be best kept in an area that has morning sun rather than the hot afternoon sun. Did you use a root cutting powder or hormone gel? This will help the cuttings strike. In a few weeks water with a solution of seaweed booster or Yates Uplift Root Booster and this will help the roots strengthen and grow.
