Osteospermum Cuttings?

CatieCatie Posts: 50
Hello image I've bought two beautiful Osteospermum plants for my Grandad's grave. But before I put them on his grave and the rabbit feast on them, I'd like to take a few cuttings. How would I go about it? I'm confused as to where to make the cut as it seems a lot, if not all of the new shoots seems to have flowers or buds on them and I was told not to take cuttings from shoots which have flowers/buds? Any help would be much appreciated image Cate

    Remove the buds with your finger and thumb, and take the cutting as normal.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I took flowering cuttings off my osteospermums earlier last month I just took any flowers and buds off and they have rooted fine.
