As long as the elderberry and currant plants have not leafed out, you can take and stick cuttings.  Most of the buds will be beneath the soil once they're stuck, and this should protect them from any cold temps you experience this spring. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Zone 4a)

Normally this is the time of the year that I would be lopping off
elderberries and currants, and digging up suckers but I've done a
minimal amount of that this year given how far ahead the season.  Next
week I'm seeing low temps in the high teens which should do a pretty
good job of killing all new growth.  I was thinking tho that that
might reset the plants a bit and maybe it would again make sense to do
cuttings?  Thoughts?
