Suitable plants for hardwood cuttings include Grape vines, Kiwifruit, Blueberries, Raspberry, Blackcurrants, Figs, Quinces, Pomegranates, Hydrangeas, Roses, Rhododendrons, Viburnum, Hebes, Camellia, Bougainvillea and Wisteria. Don't be scared to experiment either, it's a low-cost exercise so it's not a disaster if cuttings don't survive!
Do you have plants that aren't deciduous, or they keep their leaves through winter? Never fear, many plants are suited to alternative types of cuttings, taken at appropriate times of the year.
'Softwood' cuttings are taken from tender new leafy growth, whereas 'semi-hardwood' cuttings are taken from stems that have partly matured.
