Can anyone tell me if i can take cuttings from my large clematis climbing bush to transplant into other areas of the garden, and how do i do it? http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/16/16_15_11.gif (http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001_ZNfox000)

It's too late in the year now. Take them in the autumn. stick them in water until they grow a root, then plant. If they don't grow a root, try again in Jan. To assist rooting, you could add some rooting powder to the water, and put a plastic bag or cut the bottom off a large soft drinks bottle and place the lot over the cutting and containor. Haven't actually tried this with clemantis, but it works with most other shrubs and plants.
good luck.

wouldn't pegging out do too?
you know when you bury one of the trailers in the soil for a while til it takes root.
