Propagation

The seed does not require any pre-treatment and can be sown in the spring in a cold frame[4]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 5 - 10cm with a heel, July/August in a frame. Very easy[5].

Cuttings of mature wood, 20 - 30cm in a sheltered outdoor bed in November/December. High percentage[5].
