Pieris japonica. How best to propagate and when, please, all you experts out there!



Hi Gattina, you can take softwood cuttings now, or semi hardwood cuttings in late summer, put them in a propagator for a little bottom heat, should root quite easily, Derek.

Thank you, Derek.
I'm not sure, if I do it now, that I really need a propagator - it's 8.30p.m. and still 27°c out there. It's been up to 32° today. Getting just a little warm for me, and it's only early June.

Yes indeed, sorry I forgot you,re in Italy, you,re probably right, at those temperatures you will probably need to keep them cool rather than warm, lol. Derek.
