How to propagate Salmonberry
Propagate by seed or cuttings (semi-ripe for evergreens, softwood or hardwood for deciduous species) in summer or winter.
Alternatively, R.odoratus may be increased by division and R.'Benenden' and R.ulmifolius 'Bellidiflorus' by layering in spring. You can also propagate by root division in winter.
