how do i take cuttings of red robin



Hello Conor and welcome to GoY. I'm interested in the replies to this one as I've got the dwarf photinia (little red robin) and wouldn't mind some advice on cuttings too.

Hello both ... all I know, remember, is that you can take 'ripewood cuttings' from evergreens in late summer or early autumn. Not tried it myself but Google on 'ripewood cuttings' may be of help for information on how to?

Avkg47 is right..But I had to prune a large branch off mine in late Autumn. So I took a few cuttings as well. they all seem to have taken.

Late Summer would be best though.

Thanks both - I'll try some later in the year.
