Plant them out in the summer or following spring. This should be done at least once every three years in order to maintain the vigour of the plant.Basal cuttings in spring. Harvest the shoots when they are about 10 - 15cm long with plenty of underground stem. Pot them up into individual pots and keep them in light shade in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are rooting well. Plant them out in the summer.
