Propagation

Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in the autumn in a cold frame[3], but it can also be sown in the spring[3]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in light shade in the cold frame for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Consider giving the plants some protection from the cold for at least their first winter outdoors.

Cuttings of greenwood in the summer[3].
