Propagating Heel Cuttings


In the case of flowering types, select a non-flowering shoot.

Tug sharply rather than peeling off the cutting.

Take care not to strip away bark from the parent plant, as this could encourage infection.

1) Select Cutting
2) Remove cutting
3) Unprepared cutting
4) Heel trimmed
5) Ready for rooting

To prevent the plastic bag touching the foliage form a rib cage with wire or split cane around the cutting.
