Easy peasy. Some months of the year works better than others. I've cuttings taken in July and November 2011 and March 2012. More than 3/4 of the cuttings have taken with last July's having buds on already.
Wait until July, take a long length of stem. Cut into 9" lengths above a bud at the top and below a bud at the bottom. Add rooting compound on the bottom and insert into a tall pot of damp GP compost/vermiculite mixture. Cover with plastic bag for a few weeks. Keep out of direct sunlight
My attempts at planting these outside always failed as it's easy to allow them to dry out.
Root growth will be slow so you will need to wait a whole year
until they are ready to plant out outside.
