Ok - this is something I tried only once - so keeping my fingers crossed. Top Left - my winter jasmine is not doing very well, turns out its growing in a very tiny hole in an old patio.

Top (middle) - take a pot filled with compost, as much as you can get in it.

Top (right) - next I took a stem that already showed some signs of healthy buds.

Thanks Richard I wish you could stretch the pics to get a clearer shot of what to do 😂 maybe the IT boys and girls can sort it out 😂😂😂

Bottom (Left) - I then carefully severed the stem in half across where a bud was forming, but not completely - I left it slightly attached. You can use a small twig or matchstick between the severe to keep the cut separated.

Bottom (Middle) - I then made a small trench in the pot of compost and pushed the severed stem (still attached slightly to mother plant) into the compost and pegged it down.

Bottom (right) - finally I watered it and put a large rock over it to hold it more firmly in place. With a bit of luck, roots will form over time. The buds on the end of the stem should give me a sign of growth is occurring, and then I can cut it free of the parent - a new plant. Ta dah! Wish me luck 😁

@elflin - oh, that's a shame. I was avoiding to post to many pics. Does the above descriptions help maybe? If not I'll maybe have to post individually if everyone is having trouble seeing them.
