Taking cuttings from unknown shrub

Ok Many thanks I'll check for suckers and see if I can find any.  Do I need to keep the softwood cuttings I've taken in my greenhouse?

I have found that my lavender tended to get very woody after 3 - 4 years and I took lots of cuttings last year but I also tried "sinking" a couple of them into tall pots last year and am waiting to see how that worked.  It is supposed to stimulate new growth in the plants at the base... but I'm not fully convinced that it will work.

Taking cuttings from unknown shrub

I have had to cut back a shrub in my mum's garden as her house is being sold and photographer needs a better view of the house for photos.  It flowers beautifully  - pink in summer but I don't know what it is...  I have taken some of the cuttings to my own garden to try and propagate them but not sure how to go about this. Can I put photos on to see if anyone can identify the plant?

I took rose cuttings about three years ago and they have grown but never flowered as yet.  Any ideas on what I can do to encourage my plants to flower this year?

I lift my lillies and store them dry till spring then replant them sometimes get little bulbils or offsets which I plant in small pots and then gradually pot up. I think Carol Klein had some info on this in her latest gardening programme.
