Pre-Book to Order Rooted Cuttings

Rooted cuttings are available for preorder only; orders should be placed by November 1.  Most plants on the Van Veen Mother Plant List can be pre-ordered as rooted cuttings.  Or you may acquire cuttings from your own sources that ship to Van Veen Nursery for propagation.  In much of the U.S. and Canada, the season for taking cuttings is generally summer through autumn, though it all depends on the seasonal variations in the development of new growth.  Early bloomers usually force new growth earlier in the season, late spring/early summer, while new growth on late bloomers develops during the late summer/early autumn.  Rhododendrons and evergreen azaleas are rooted over the winter.  Deciduous azaleas are rooted over the summer.  And vireyas can be rooted at any time of year.  If you are looking for plants that are not on our Mother plant list, please inquire as we often have additional sources available for cuttings.
