I got a number of emails from David Duetsch that were useful.

And oops I lost the first one.  The gist of which was take lots of
cuttings(for some species David has had a 1:20 success rate), scarrify
the bottem (I'm not to sure on this one) and use bottem heat.  My
greenhouse is finally set up and I am in a position to try it.  I plan
to take lots of cuttings of the ends of branches, use rooting hormone
and see what my sucess rate is before I try with the crown.

The email that follows answers further questions I had.

Thanks again David
