Mahonia cuttings

United Kingdom Gb

I have a large mahonia charity which needs pruning, my daughter would like a cutting. Can I try to get one to grow from the younger growth I prune?

On plant Mahonia



Hi Tigerlily yes suppose technically possible but have always found
Mahonia charity to be relatively inexpensive to purchase esp as a small plant.Now a good time to purchase as finished flowering ie cheaper and about to sprout new growth.Your daughter could be waiting a while for a cutting to develop.

Buy another for your daughter ,she would have to wait a few years for good flowering, there are other very good Mahonia more interesting than Charity.
