Hi, I have a Sabrina hydrangea that I want to propagate but it's only been in my garden for a year and is still very, very small. Should I wait until it's a few years old before I do? Thanks, Sabrina (now you see why I have a Sabrina hydrangea!)

Hi I have one which I bought as a fairly large plant and cost me quite a lot of money. On the way home I broke a bit off and so popped it in some compost in my propagator. It rooted really well and I took 2 more cuttings last year which also took. This spring I trimmed it back and took cuttings from the trimmings (about 7) they seem to be taking too. So the answer is that it is easy to propagate from soft wood cuttings. You need them to be about 15cm long. I suppose it depends how many you shoots you have on your plant. It is a lovely hydrangea. The plant in the pot is the original cutting. I think now 2 or 3 years old. Hope this helps. MaryAnne PS looks like this was an old post. Hope you still have your plant if not I have a few cuttings!!!
