Hydrangea Runaway Bride - propagation

GranniegardenerGranniegardener KentPosts: 26
I bought one of these this summer, 9cm pot. Its growing really well in a large pot. I know I won't get flowers this year so I have decided to take cuttings. They don't seem to be rooting as easily as other hydrangeas. Is it too late in the year? Am I doing something else wrong? (I have been unsuccessful with climbing hydrangeas in the past). I would be grateful for any advice.

    Far too small to take cuttings from if it's only recently been in a 3 inch pot.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Oops, silly me, it wasn't that small a pot, more like 15cm. Its grown really well and is filling a 30cm pot fast.

    What I really wanted to know if it needs any special propagation techniques. Its quite new on the market and I can't find much info. It's listed on RHS website, but I prefer to get advice from yer common or garden gardeners (as it were) as that's more to my liking   :)
  • I appear to have one cutting rooting (well it's not keeled over yet), and possibly the little stump next to it is alive.
