These cuttings can be difficult to overwinter, it is best to keep them in a greenhouse or cold frame until the following spring before planting them out. Cuttings of mature wood, winter in a frame. They should root in early spring - pot them up when large enough to handle and plant them out in the summer if sufficient new growth is made, otherwise keep them in a cold frame for the next winter and then plant them out in the spring.Layering of current seasons growth in July/August.

Plants are hardy to about -20°c. A very ornamental plant, it flowers in the winter and the flowers are said to withstand temperatures down to -12°c without damage. The flowers diffuse a sweet and cloying perfume of heliotrope. The fruit, however, is not often produced in this country[K]. This may be due to the plant being self-incompatible and so growing 2 or more different cultivars together may improve fruit set. Hand pollination may also be beneficial as well as siting the plants so that they get the maximum of protection from severe winter weather[K]. A west-facing wall or woodland edge would be ideal for this[K]. The plants flower on terminal and lateral clusters of the current years growth, any pruning is best carried out in the spring.This species has long been known as V. fragrans, but this name is invalid. It is closely related to V. grandiflorum.
