Dead easy -take a non-flowering shoot-about 3/4 inches- trim just below a leaf- node push into compost -or pull a shoot off the plant with a bit of a heel- trim push into compost.

In my experience rooting powder unnecessary- but if you have some then use it.

Is it a container-I am suspecting the adult vine weevil if it isn't slugs or snails-have you put down slug pellets or any other sort of precautions?

Ah Miss B-if only I could  bottle it -would send you some-the weather people say parts of Scotland need the rain-are they fibbing to me?-you should not heating in July-put on another jumper?

Jenny that would be as well-have no co-ordination at all-can't dance to save my life-don't think I want to exercise in public

The getting it all to end at once cooking thing is a skill that only women have in my experience

I still dont know where to put the dead slugs tho... I cant stand touching them and as for stabbing them with a fork yuck... I think the bucket with salt water I can manage with throw away gloves but dont know what to do with them after..just had a thought would the birds eat them?

They might do-but then might not go for the salty taste-and you may then have a lot of yuccy slugs laying about-you could just dig a hole,say a prayer, and bury them
