get cuttings from establishes plants of a stout-growing
and healthy stock (there is a good deal of difference
in this respect).
The cuttings should be small,

a patch of light soil in half-shade at the end
of June or in a box of sandy compost, not one
ought to be lost.
Plant out in nursery beds when
rooted, a foot apart, and in October consign to
their proper quarters.
The bushes may stand many
years, but will sooner or later become gnarled
and tumble-down, and a due succession of young
plants should always be provided.
