Unrooted Cuttings - often abbreviated to URCs - are harvested from a mother plant, which is normally produced from high health status stock to ensure optimum quality and health.
Production of unrooted cuttings
URCs can be harvested on a weekly basis and are produced in countries that have an especially advantageous climate for the variety concerned. For perennials, the ideal environment is cool with high light levels and neutral day length. Walter Blom Plants works in close collaboration with Green Leaf Plants®, who produce our Unrooted Cuttings in their ideally located facility in Colombia, South America.
Benfits of growing from Unrooted Cuttings
Low cost, high quality starting material that can be delivered on a weekly basis.
When to choose Unrooted Cuttings for your production
URCs are an ideal choice for growers who have their own propagation facilities for rooting the URCs into plugs and need larger quantities of a variety, delivered on a regular basis. Walter Blom Plants can produce unrooted cuttings to contract for you. Contact us for further details.
Varieties in our standard production program can be supplied from stock. Orders placed by Tuesday will be delivered the following week.
For custom programs, we recommend placing your order at least 6 months ahead to ensure sufficient stock to meet your requirements.
