i would like to take cuttings but dont know how to



You can take hardwood cuttings in the winter, or green (softwood) ones in early summer. Good luck with them.

I assume we are talking about a Sambucus??? Is it the lovely black-leaved one?

Gosh, I thought they self-seeded .... well, at least they did when I lived on the Isle of Wight .... they were a bit of a nuisance actually ....
