Greenwood cuttings – late spring / mid-summer

Greenwood cuttings are taken a little later in the season than softwood cuttings, usually from late spring to mid-summer.  

They are similar to softwood cuttings except the base of the stem is firmer as it has had longer to mature.

Prepare greenwood cuttings as you would softwood cuttings, but make them a bit longer, generally 7.5-12.5cm (3-5 inches) long.

This technique is suitable for berry fruits, Ceanothus, Forsythia and Philadelphus.
