Another method of propagation is by tip or ground layering. This is done by pinning the tip of a branch to the ground where it will root. Once rooted you can sever the new start from the parent plant. May 14, Step 1.
Taking blackcurrant cuttings – cutting stems. From the stems you have removed from the bush, cut a section cm flowering currant bush cuttings and as thick as a pencil.
