Lift a clump of the oriental poppy that you want to take cuttings from or just scrape away the soil around the roots.
Trim off a good section of the roots with a knife.
Cut the root into short lengths (around 2.5cm) and push these vertically into a seed tray, of compost, thick end up.
Cover the seed tray with a thin layer of grit to improve drainage and water well.
Wait until new shoots have emerged and formed new roots, before potting up singly.
