I have several large bushes growing and would like to start more,but do not know how to take from them to plant.



There is a method where you cut the tip of a shoot, with several pairs of leaves. Strip the bottom leaves, dip the bottom of the stem in rooting powder and plant in a small pot with john innes no. 1 potting soil. Dampen the soil. Then I would put a small plastic bag over it, and grow it on a warm, windowsill. Don't pot it up to the next size til you know it has taken and has roots showing in the bottom of the pot.

Someone else may give different instructions. There are more than 1 ways of growing things.
