I have a potted honeysuckle tree and I want to propagete a cutting. What would I need to do?

The UK's Royal Horticulture Society has this to say: You can propagate honeysuckles by taking softwood or semi-ripe cuttings 5-7.5cm (2-3in) long from late spring to summer. Evergreens also take well from hardwood cuttings, about 20-30cm (8-12in) long, from autumn to mid-winter.
Try layering in spring, particularly with climbers as the flexible young stems bend easily to the ground.
Sow fresh seeds in autumn and keep in a cold frame, or refrigerate the seed mixed with moist compost for four to 12 weeks, and then germinate at 13°C-18°C (55°F-64°F).
