Does anyone have any tips or success stories on proagating Red Robins? I have a couple of red robins planted outside my living room window (south facing) but they are overgrown and need to be cut right back. I haven't pruned them at all yet and I'd like some advice on how to propagate them while I'm pruning them. I hate the thought of losing out to all the new cuttings I could have from them but not sure how to do this and continue looking after the new cuttings. Can you help?
Photinia can be propagated by taking softwood cuttings in early Summer or semi-ripe cuttings in late Summer or Autumn. It might be a bit late now but worth trying - RHS advice on semi-ripe cuttings here:
Thanks BobTheGardener, I still haven't tackled the red robin, is it too early to propagate and prune back at this time of year, what do you think?
