Best time to take cuttings Late Nov thru March. Take cutting of this years wood. & take it with a heel.... apply 0.4% IBA (rooting hormone) Stick in well drained soil & keep soil damp. Rooting time 6-12 weeks.

This is good information. Thanks George! You make it sound very simple...

I have permission to take cuttings from a nieighbors 5 ft tall "Oregon Blue Cypress" (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) and wonder if the procedure shown above is the same for cypress as it is for junipers?

Anything I need to do differently? I've never taken cuttings before or tried to grow plants in this manner. I have no greenhouse for the cuttings so my only winter options are leaving them outside all winter (zone 5 w/ cold winters), or store them in an unheated garage, or bring them inside the house.
