Step by step
Select the cu ing material from this year’s new growth and to keep it fresh pop it into a polythene bag sprinkled with water.
Prepare the individual cu ings by trimming above a pair of leaves and below to leave a short stem approximately 2½-5cm (1-2in) long.
Insert the prepared cu ings into cell trays of rooting compost of three-quarters multi-purpose compost with one-third Vermiculite.
Place the tray in a propagator, water, then stand out of direct sun. To keep the cu ing turgid, mist daily with water.
