Your cuttings are doing extremely well, Balcony. You must be pretty chuffed with their progress - very healthy specimens.

That's exactly what I thought ... well done!

Thank you Kate & Shirley! Yes, you are right, they are doing very well! Although you can only see 3 in this photo, because they are on a tiny shelf I put up some years ago, there are another 3 lower down that are not visible here.

They are all from the cuttings I took back in March this year. But I also have a number of cuttings from last year & the year before!

Since I discovered that they root very well in water I no longer throw the prunings from the mother tree away! This year I cut it back harder than I have ever done before after last year I gave it a good pruning before changing the compost in it's pot. It must have liked the new compost after such brutal treatment that it grew better than it had in some years! I shan't be cutting it back next year even though it's grow well again this year.
