can i take rose and shrus cuttings now even though they still have leaves on, do i take all the leaves off or leave a few on the top?



I don't see why not, they'll fall off anyway. It's the right time to do it.

Took mine three weeks ago and they look fine. Also took some fig cuttings and Acca or Feijoa ones. With hardwood cuttings, it's just a question of them making a few roots during the dormant season. I do all of mine in large pots in the polytunnel as I find this works better than just putting them in a trench outside. Also they are easier to move and pot on later.

You might like to PM GoY member Terratoonie, who has been doing just that I believe.
