Reminders for this plant

Due over 12 years ago:

Taking cuttings

I just cut below a joint on a young, soft but strong stem that isnt flowering , remove most of the leaves and stick them in seed compost and keep them sheltered and watered, only do one per pot and right in the middle to give the new roots plenty of room.
I replace the original plants if they get woody after about 4 years, as I find in their first 3-4 years a good trim in spring keeps them from over growing and getting straggly.
