About Our Cuttings and Scionwood
Our annual scionwood and cuttings sale is from early December to late March. Our sale starts off with Fig, Mulberry, and Willow cuttings. In early January, scionwood for other fruit such as apple, pear, plum, and cherry go on sale. To be notified when our sale will start, use the back-in-stock reminder on each product page or follow us on Facebook.
Typing our cuttings and scionwood
All of our products are grown from trees on our farm. We don't sell anything that comes from a third party. We use the name that our source material had and try to provide enough photos of the plant or fruit for you to confirm type through your own research. Unfortunately we can't provide genetic testing or an extended pedigree. But if you have any questions about a specific product, please contact us.
How we harvest and store our cuttings and scionwood
All of our cuttings are harvested when they go dormant. Immediately after the harvest, we sanitize the cuttings (except willow) in a 10% bleach solution and store them in a climate controlled cooler at 37F. We don't sanitize willow because it tends to store mold-free over long periods.
Some specifics on scionwood
Our scionwood is harvested when they are dormant. Dormancy for hardwood cuttings normally begins in late December. Scionwood is first year wood. Scionwood will generally be around 3/16" in diameter but can range between 1/8” and 5/16”. It will be at least 8 to 10 inches long and should provide for at least two grafts. It is suitable for grafting onto a compatible tree or onto compatible rootstock. This is not a tree and will not root if planted.
How we process your order
We only sell when we are ready to ship. We do not presale. When you order, we pull your sticks from our cooler or harvest directly from our field. We then pack your order in a cardboard box keep it in the cooler at 37F until we transport it to the Post Office. For more information on how we ship, see our shipping policies.
