Christmas box I would like to propagate some tip cuttings.

How shall I propagate these ,in water or rooting powder?



You have several options here Kat:

Semi-ripe cuttings should be taken in mid-autumn, placed in a cold frame...or in mid-spring in a propagator, misting frequently (this is quicker).

You can sow seed in early to mid-spring in an outdoor seedbed.


By division in early to mid-spring...replanting the portions immediately in their permanent positions.

I know this doesn't answer your question of taking tip cuttings now....try these options if your tip cuttings don't take now.
