What is best way to take cuttings from my straggely penstemon 'Margarita BOP'?



So easy to do , give the plant a good water the night before , pull some side shoots off about 4 inches nip the bud out the top so it will make a bushier plant , plant round the edge of a 4 inch pot about two inches deep , give them a water then place a plastic bag over the top and keep in a shaded spot out of the full sun and should root in about 4 to 6 weeks.

I had a member on here send me cutting material in the post and they all took

Thank you so much for that. I will water tonight. Can cuttings be planted in multi purpose compost?

Yes. Remove the bottom leaves on the part of the stem that will be under the compost.
