    Yeah, I don't know either. I had a bit of a google last week and the bit I found suggested it was easier to grow hawthorn from seed rather than cutting. But we were hand-pruning some of the hedge anyway so we cut the 'bits' to about 8" and just stuck them in a 'slit trench'. They've got two chances!

    I recently trimmed my red/black currant bush, and I thought afterwards, I wonder if I can plant them as cuttings.
    Some are doing ok. I think currants would make a good low (4') hedge.
