Cuttings exchange

Well, my grafting skills still need a lot of work. I was very excited about the scion exchange I held this past Winter however. Anybody up for a cuttings exchange? It is time to start rooting cuttings.
I would love to work out a trade with anybody, if they are so inclined. If I don't have anything you want, I will pay for postage.
The plants of mine that are big enough for cuttings are:
Yuletide
Taylors Perfection
Blood of China
Kramers Supreme
Night Rider
Silver Waves
Nina Avery
Daydream
Fran Homeyer
Tom Knudson
Man Size
Horkan
Grace Albritton
Some of these will be in limited supply, so if I have one that tickles you, please let me know ASAP.
My list of wants is huge, so tempt me, I more than likely will bite.
If for some reason GW doesn't let me know about a message, you can e-mail me at TheCitrusGuy@netzero.com
Thanks!
Darren

RE: Cuttings exchange

Darren, I would like a few that you have, but late July-Aug is my best rooting time. I mainly collect pre-1900's, but these are tempting.Would you be able to reserve until then? I would like, Night Rider, Silver Waves, Fran Homeyer, Are the cuttings that I sent doing OK? Thanks a bunch

Hey Florence, At the rate things are going....it should not be a problem to reserve what you want. I have this posted on a few other sites and you are the very first respondent.
As for the things that you had sent me, sadly, they are not doing well....okay actually they are dead. That is why I posted the first sentence of "My grafting skills still need a lot of work". I was talking to one of my Camellia buddies here in Charleston and there were a few minor things I was doing wrong, hopefully next grafting season I will get it right. So I figured I will try the rooting thing. I tend to do better with rooting anyway. I felt REALLY bad about the scions I got from you and a few others that died, I had actually considered mouth to mouth, but didn't figure it would work. LOL Remind me again when the time comes to root in your area and I will send them, no problem.

Try rooting and I can send you some in AUgust. I will be in Charleston at Magnolia Gardens in August.

Darren If you are interested in any of these please advise exactly what you are looking for in cuttings. I am not looking for cuttings I simply don't have the time But I don't mind sharing. Maybe in years ahead I will have more time to devote. I don't seem to be able to keep up with what I have growing now. I did manage to get three more camellias in the ground this late spring and they are looking well. In years to come also I will have lots of other varieties to swap. Some are just really slow in getting established while others have taken off like gangbusters.
Darren again I apologize for being so late in getting back on here.

I have never tried rooting camellias So did what I thought would work. I swore to myself that this was going to be the year that I did air-layering But it has not happened yet.
