First thing you should do is wet the leaves of your cuttings. To prepare the cuttings, just cut off the tips - usually between 5-10cm, and remove a few leaves from the bottom. If the remaining leaves are long, you could trim them a little to prevent water loss. You will need some type of hormone treatment (check out local nurseries or gardening sections of large department stores). All you need to do is cut just below the last node on the stem and dip it immediately in the hormone powder/liquid. Then place it into whatever medium you have prepared. The main thing with cuttings is to keep the leaves moist all the time until it has grown roots and is well established. Blueberries can take 2 months before they start to develop roots. Check that the leaves on your cuttings have not dried out already Rolf, so you don't waste your time.
