Similarly one may ask, how do you take a cutting from a Daphne Bush?
Dip the severed tip of the daphne cutting in rooting hormone talc. Gently tap the stem to loosen the excess powder. Insert the cutting up to its lowest set of leaves in the planting hole in the pot of compost. Firm the compost around the stem to hold the daphne cutting upright.
Beside above, when can I transplant Daphne? Transplant daphne shrubs in spring after any frost risk is past. The shrubs establish a healthy root system during summer and flower in winter and early spring.
