I'd like to take a cutting of my Rhodolia. When's the best time to do it? At the moment it's pretty dormant, should I wait until it starts into growth or cut the rhizome now?

Hi Sue, I'm not familiar with Rhodolia but if it has rhizome structure in the ground, my experience has been to take cuttings when dormant.
