Semi-hard cuttings from Photinia

I have an old photinia in a pot. It is quite sparse and leggy but has enough to take a few semi-hard cuttings from the top. Can you tell me how to carry out this process, please?

    I have tried taking cuttings of these with no success but that might just be me.

    Someone else will be along soon.

    Don't know if this is the right thing.

    If you put your hardwood cuttings title in the search box then choose "articles" at top left where it gives you forum, articles and something else then narrow your search using the menu on the left. 

    Personally I use my RHS Encyclopedia as I find this site a b****r to navigate. image

    PP I find navigation on this site is not easy. 

    I am glad its not just me.

    Hhave their been many comments on this before? 

    There is another general one I use which is much simpler.

    weedy I'm not sure if anyone has commented or not. I didn't even know there were videos and things till I came upon a discussion between Pansyface and Dave Morgan.

    The trouble is you don't know to go to look for the thing if you don't know it's there if you know what I mean. It's like asking "what do you not know?" image

    Personally I don't like the site and seldom use it. I only use the forum.
