I don't think it is easy to root cuttings of gorse.....pretty difficult in fact. To be practical it is a waste of time
I think copying nature is the way, viz., by layering. Gorse seems to layer itself quite readily. Wild animals will damage gorse or weigh branches down and these produce thickets. Try layering
arneil, because it is a "weed" it doesn't mean it will seed when WE want it to. I have tried to establish various wild plants by seed, cuttings, etc. (For sentimental reasons) in the great outdoors without any success.
Apropos of establishing wild plants, has anyone noticed if rabbits are esp attracted to wild plants we plant? Instead of them being put off they seem attracted to them. In fact , newly planted cultivated varieties too seem to be irresistable too.
