Does anyone know if its possible to take a buddleja cutting ?

Yes it is, and it must be amazingly easy because I did it.  I chopped off a bit with two little leaves showing parallel and poked the inch or so of twig underneath them into ordinary garden soil until the leaves were touching the earth.  I don't know whether the roots came from the leaves or the stem, and this probably wasn't the 'right' way to do it, but it worked.

Thats good because I've pulled a piece off with a couple of leaves on it & stuck it in some compost, so perhaps it will root just like yours did.

I usually do buddleja cuttings in spring as soft wood cuttings, but you can do hard wood cuttings in winter too.
