How do I take cuttings from my hydrangea?

How to Make Hydrangea Cuttings

When taking cutting from your hydrangea, you should make the cuts from the ends of the nonflowering shoots. Each hydragnea shoot generally has three pairs of leaves. Remove the bottom pair of leaves and make your cut at the stem, just below a joint. Place your cutting in well-packed sand inside a cold frame or propagating case. Once the roots form, allow a few days before you plant in a container.
