viburnum tinus cuttings
Should I leave in water to root, or cut down and add rooting powder, thanks

    Would be good to know as well, I tried some in the Autumn with zero luck.

    my gut feeling is they're too long. 
    I'd cut them to the lowest leaves, then remove all but a pair of leaves.

    Worth trying I suppose but the RHS recommends semi-ripe cuttings in summer for propagating evergreen viburnum.  Have a look at this link -

    Keep us posted please.

    Plan to get the house on the market this year so will need to take loads of cuttings going by my usual 'success' rate.
