Propagation

Seed - sow March in a north facing cold frame. Pre-treating the seed with 4 weeks warm then 3 weeks cold stratification improves germination. It is probable that sowing the seed as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame would be a more reliable method[K]. Prick the seedlings out into individual pots once they are large enough to handle. Plant them out in the summer if sufficient growth has been made, otherwise grow them on in a cold frame for their first winter and plant out in late spring of the following year.

Cuttings of young shoots, 7cm with a heel, June in a frame[1]. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 7cm with a heel, July/August in a frame[1]. Layering in spring before new growth begins. Takes 12 months[2].

Division of suckers in late winter. They can be planted straight out into their permanent positions.
