Growing Cornus from seed

Transplanting Cornus

It is easy to propagate Cornus spp. by taking cuttings. Cut the stem just below a node (where leaves would grow from). Trim the top of your cutting just above a node, so that there is a node right at the top and right at the bottom of your cutting. Aim to cut pieces that are approximately 10-15 centimetres (4-6 inches) in length. Trim all but the top most leaves from your cutting.

If you would like to directly insert your cutting into the ground, make sure to cut the bottom of the stem on an angle so it is easier to drive the cutting in. Alternatively, you may improve the chances of survival by placing your cutting in water until it has rooted, then digging a hole to plant.
