    Hi everyone, I have a question about pruning my angel trumpet, what is the best way to do it if I want to keep cuttings off it. I have 3 trees about 9 ft tall and I want to keep a bunch of the cuttings if possible,I have been looking around on different sites but I just dont know, I want to cut them in the right places so they will live , so if you can help me I sure would appreciate it so much.I am cutting them today because we are having a frost tonight, thank you again Margie

    Just make cuttings about 5" or so... nothing too large. nothing too small. they root pretty easily... or they have for me at least.

    I’ve had Brugmansia, but never over winterered them outdoors. I generally take cuttings in late autumn and put them in water to root for the following year.

    Last year I had two plants - Arborea and Suavolens but due to our unusually hot summer, both died. As they look and smell lovely in the garden, I’m going to get another couple of plants this year.
