Leycestera formosa

Devon, United Kingdom Gb

Can someone tell me the best way to propagate Leycestera formosa




If you look around your garden you will more than likely find a seedling. The birds drop the seeds. They are very esay to grow from their ripe seeds. You will have a good sized shrub in a couple of years, but they can be pruned hard to keep under control. Common name Pheasant berry. You can also grow them from soft cuttings now.
