When is the best time to take cuttings off a camellia plus how do you do it.


Thanks in anticipation

Not sure there is a best time.  I've taken cuttings from camellias even in winter.  However, I think early summer is good.  I take heels from healthy shoots and trim leaves by half.  Cuttings about 2 to 3" long.  John Innes ericaceous plus perlite compost.  7 cuttings or so around the rim of the pot and covered with polythene bag.
