Thanks Pam, always good to get the advice from an expert
Not so sure about 'expert' Kate I just bung 'em in and hope they grow
I will be taking my Puts Folly fuchsia cuttings sometime in the next few days - I need 24 for my basket tree baskets - so I will take 48 if I can - that will give me plenty of plants to play with

Now I feel completly inadequate...
I have a couple of seeds in pots on my windowsill and 6x hollyhock nigra / 6x lupin 4 hostas & 4 rose cuttings in pots in my coldframe..
I think I need to get my ass into gear, lol
Today I have taken 2 cuttings off a broken branch that was on a newLy bought Cornus Midwinter Fire, and walking round garden found a wind damaged bit of Clematis cartmanii 'Joe' so nothing ventured nothing gained - have stuck those in a pot - managed to get 2, covered in bag and popped on some heat.
Not very good at cuttings, so will try,even if wrong time of year Is it worth a punt??
Nothing to lose Rosa. I would expect success with the cornus, never had any luck with clematis at any time. Wonder if I could do the same with a variegated rhamnus that broke under the weight of snow.
We are both retired now bunny - it does make a difference
I have been really busy potting up the cuttings I took at the end of the summer .I will have plenty of plants to play with at planting time
