You can cut a 4 to 5 " cutting from the tip of a branch.
Remove the lower one-third leaves and snip the remaining leaves in half.
Remove a bit of the bark with a knife on the cut end of the cutting.
Dip the end in rooting hormone and place the cutting in a pot of peat and.
sand mixture.
Maintain a constant level of moisture.

Place the pot in a bright, indirect sunny area that is protected from wind.
Start checking for roots in 4 weeks, but it can take up to 2 months.
Keep the new cutting in a pot until the following spring.
Winter over in a sheltered cold frame or garage with ventilation.
