I do bonsai and therefore do a lot of rooted cuttings for new trees. In our climate it's fairly easy in spring, with lots of light rain and no heat or sun. In other climates it's more tricky. The problem is to
prevent the leaves from losing their moisture while waiting for the roots to develop. In spring use green wood, pencil thickness or less. In summer use hardwood under 1/2" diameter, and cuttings 6-7" long with the tip cut off. I like to dip in rooting hormone then plant in perlite. For best reults water gently daily and keep in a shaded place with a clear plastic bag loosely covering it. In hot weather mist the leaves 1-2 times a day then replace the plastic. Do not be tempted to rush it. For best results wait until fall, when you see healthy new growth to put in a larger pot or the ground. Use good potting soil and be careful when repotting, the new roots will be fragile.
