Cuttings of soft-wood, early summer in a frame. Pot up into individual pots once they start to root and plant them out in late spring or early summer of the following year. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 5 - 8 cm long with a heel if possible, July/August in a frame. Plant them into individual pots as soon as they start to root. 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. Takes 15 months.

The deliciously scented flowers are produced in winter but can withstand temperatures down to between -12 and -20°c if the plant is in a sheltered position with no early morning sun. The plant itself is hardy to about -20°c. A very ornamental plant, there are many named varieties. This species is a hybrid of garden origin, V. farreri x V. grandiflorum. It is more vigorous than either species and also has larger flowers. Since it is a hybrid, it might not set seed or even produce fruit. It is, however, worth experimenting with growing this species close to either of its parents to see if this improves the ability to set fruit in Britain[K].Self incompatible, there must be at least 2 genetically distinct plants growing if fruit is wanted. Even then, fruit is rarely seen in Britain. Hand pollination may improve the fruit yield as might siting the plants so that they get the maximum protection from severe winter weather.
