    Sow seeds in containers when ripe (autumn) and place in cold frame, cool greenhouse or similar environment, where they will be chilled but not freeze solid. They can also be rooted from softwood cuttings, if you have the setup for it (mist bench, plastic tunnel, pot with plastic on wire hoops...).

    Euonymus europaeus is common here, E. latifolius is not. Both have conspicuous autumn color and fruits, but the latter differ in shape. Try searching the internet under their botanical names for images.
