Propagation

Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame[3], it can also be sown in early to mid spring in a cold frame[6][7]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Cuttings of young shoots in late spring[8]. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame[3]. Very easy[K].

Layering in early summer. Old plants often self-layer[3].
