Softwood cuttings

One of the easier forms of propagation is from softwood cuttings, these are cuttings taken from the new growth, usually at the end of spring to summer.

Softwood cuttings do strike easily, however they are also prone to drying out frilly quickly.

The cuttings are taken once the leaves have fully formed and yet the stem is still pliable.

Many deciduous plants such as birch, clematis, continus, hydrangea and wisteria are well suited, to this technique.
