Question: What time of year is best for taking cuttings?

Answer: Those cuttings that are made in late winter, just before the burst of spring growth, are called “hardwood” cuttings. “Softwood” cuttings are taken during really active growth spurts, and “semi-hardwood” cuttings, the most common type, are generally taken in late spring or early summer, as the current season’s growth is becoming somewhat mature.
