@hayleyaj I've took 4 cuttings and hoping they will take as its been lovely in the garden for 75p have mulched it up about 3" in hope it will come back but its in the wet border, although have dug a full bag of grit in that small border on Sunday to help with drainage so we will see if it survives winter 👍
