Root SH cuttings in Late Fall indoors?

Posted by ibmdcb MA (My Page) on

I am looking to root some cuttings from my yard. I did some research and figured that I need to do hardwood cuttings in late late fall or early spring for plants like Junipers.

But what about those need semi-ripe cuttings like hollys, false cypress, arborvitae, and boxwood? I know it is probably late, but I don't want to wait another year. If I root them now, indoors, as I don't have a cold frame, what do I do if they root? Should I keep them indoors for the whole winter? Would it be a probblem for them to skip a winter, which is kinda unnatural? lol.

I am really just a newbie. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

RE: Root SH cuttings in Late Fall indoors?

IF they had been in a "cold frame" the cuttings would start to callace as long as soil temp above freezing. then start to root in the spring
will get the same results if take cuttings of firm new growth in the sppring & root.
IThe only reason Istart these cuttings in the fall is there is nothing else to ppropagae in this space & I NEED the space in the spring
