Before someone else gets in I should have said that leycesteria has hollow stems during the winter therefore it may not be suitable to take hardwood cuttings, they can also be divided or plant seed, I never tried a root cutting but i imagine that would also work.

I had heard that it can be invasive, that (and laziness) is why I've done nothing about growing it to date, even though it is very attractive.
You know, I think I'll give it a miss - I've enough to do rooting out all the unwanted young hypericum, hawthorn and ash that I find all over the garden!

to give everyone else a chance to comment maybe we should start another topic as we have gone away from ID but in relation to the Ash its the native ones we should look after as it was imported one s that caused the problems and why do we export our native seed anyway to nurseries abroad but that again is a different topic.

Good idea Greengage. Go ahead: maybe a discussion on imported trees, home grown, self-seeded....... Hazards of imported material.......
