Take semi ripe cuttings in late summer or try layering, If you take cuttings, try this I assume you know how to take a cutting,
Get a 5cm clay pot block the drainage hole at the bottom, fill with pea gravel, Place this inside a 1ltr pot filled with potting compost and vermiculite, Fill the smaller pot with water and place your cuttings in the outer pot, The water from the clay pot will percolate into the surround mix keeping them moist but not too wet. Place the two pots inside a plastic bag supported with small canes so it does not touch the cuttings, Turn the bag when it gets too wet and refill the clay pot when it empties,
Try heel cuttings and straight cuttings see which works better. good luck.

Many thanks for your advice. I'll try both types of cuttings and see which works best.
