Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 7 - 10cm long, July/August in a frame. Cuttings or eyes in late autumn or winter. Either place them in the ground in a greenhouse or cold frame, or put them in pots. An eye cutting is where you have just one bud at the top and a short length of stem with a small part of the bark removed. These normally root well and grow away vigorously, being ready to plant into their permanent positions the following autumn.Layering into pots in late summer.

A very ornamental plant, when dormant it is quite hardy in Britain, but is better grown on a wall. The young growth in spring, even on mature plants, is frost-tender and so it is best to grow the plants in a position sheltered from the early morning sun[K]. It rarely flowers or fruits in this country except after a long hot summer. Plants are deciduous in cold winters. Plants climb by means of coiling tendrils but large plants often need tying in to support the weight of foliage.Any pruning is best carried out in the winter.
