when is the best time to take cuttings of box? and do they root easily?



Semi ripe in summer, so too late this year.

Buxus?? You can take them all throught the winter and they will root like weeds! I teach propagation and it is the one plant that will root reliable all through the winter and is small enough for all the students to have a go.

Well, I learn something every week, Vincent, I never knew that, just repeated what my gardening propagation book said...

Most evergreens will root in Winter, Bamboo (if they will root at all). Laurels, Holly, Euonymus, etc. I have even rooted Camellias in Winter, but not Rhodos.
