Using hard wood to make cuttings
For hardwood cuttings take a length of this year’s healthy, hardened growth, approximately 12in (30cm) long.
Cut it into sections around 4in (10cm) long. Make sure each piece has one end cut on a slant.
Dip the end that was cut flat into hormone rooting powder and insert it into a pot of compost and perlite, or a trench of gritty soil.
Firm them in, water well, and keep them weed and pest free.
Strike them in the ground or in pots
