How to do it.

Propagate clematis:

take leaf-bud cuttings of clematis, ivy and passion flower. Remove long young shoots and cut them into portions, each consisting of up to 2cm (1in) of stem, with a leaf at the top and a bud in the leaf-joint.

Remove any other leaves. Dip the cuttings' tips into hormone rooting powder formulated for softwood cuttings. Insert the cuttings in pots of cuttings compost leaving only the leaf showing.

Place each pot in a clear polythene bag and keep in a warm, light place. They should root in a few weeks.
