In this way, can you take cuttings in autumn?
Taking cuttings in autumn is also a good way of increase your stock of your favourite plants. At this time of year, you can take semi-ripe cuttings, from this year's growth. They are woody at the base and soft at the tip. In autumn, hormone levels are high, so plants should root and grow well.
Similarly, can you take cuttings in November? Hardwood cuttings, taken between November and February, are the easiest way to propagate a range of shrubs. The process takes longer than leafy cuttings taken in spring or summer, but hardwood cuttings are far less likely to rot or wilt, so are often more successful.
Simply so, can you take hardwood cuttings in winter?
Hardwood cuttings are taken from deciduous trees and plants (ones that lose their leaves in winter) when they are dormant, i.e. when they have no leaves. The best time for taking hardwood cuttings is from early autumn when the leaves drop to late winter. Take cuttings at leaf fall and just before the buds break.
When should I take cuttings?
It's always best to take cuttings early in the morning, when the parent plant is still turgid, i.e. full of water. This guarantees the best chance of rooting. When you take cuttings, use a sharp knife to trim the stems just below a node (or leaf joint).
