planting Hawthorh from cuttings

I love growing things from seed. I have field maples and scots pines and lots of oddments at least 20foot tall from seed in the 20 years or so that we've been here. 

Sorbus hupehensis

I've got berries like I've never had before on Sorbus hupehensis. All the S.aucuparia have been eaten, these are untouched. Will the birds be put off by the unripe appearance?

Around here our gardens would become forests with all the tree seedlings if we didn't keep pulling them out. Do you know anyone with hawthorns that would let you look around for seedlings?

I don't have much confidence in the idea of hawthorn cuttings but I'm not much good at cuttings. 

You're not too late for hard wood cuttings, just right. I'd use rooting powder on some and a control without.. Do you receive the GW newsletter? It has a bit on hardwood cuttings this week

John Downie is lovely. I haven't got any at all. 

I think you're right about Golden Hornet Dove. The  owner is really pleased that the birds don't steal the fruit

Crab apple jelly Jim I haven't had that for years

Do you know what sort of campanulas they are? There are hardy and not so hardy ones

Excellent. The mice need watching as well. They got in a frame I'd made and covered with netting one year. All the berry type seeds were stolen. OH has made me an aluminium sided frame now, they can't climb over that, nothing to get a grip on. I just have to make sure it's flat on the slabs so they can't get underneath
