How to Take Hardwood Cuttings

These take several months (and sometimes up to a year) to root, but should be ready to pot up and plant out by the following autumn.

Many plants can be propagated in this way, such as cornus (dogwood), deutzia, weigela, hydrangea, buddleia (butterfly bush, roses, currants and most willows.
