Answer: Hi Robert,
Thank you for contacting Yates, the best cutting is soft tip cutting in spring, but you may also try semi hardwood cutting in summer, keep the cutting moist with plastic bag and out of direct sunlight, plant in cutting mix as soon as possible.
Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Louise
