Planting outdoors

From Early Autumn TO Late Autumn

Plant bare rooted plants asap after you receive in Autumn. Dig a hole twice the size of the spreaded roots, and mix well rotted compost with the soil, and plant the bush at the same depth, or a little lower. Firm in well, and mulch with compost.

 

Propagation by cuttings

From Mid Autumn TO Late Winter

Take hardwood cuttings of up to 3cm from this years growth, making a clean from above a shoot and remove any soft growth. Nearly fill a container with fine grit at the bottom, to enable free draining, and a suitable compost. Place the cutting, having dipped he end in a rooting compound first, with a third of the cutting showing.
