The Use of Offshore-Produced Unrooted Cuttings at North Creek Nurseries

Steve Castorani

pp: 298-299


  • North Creek Nurseries began buying unrooted cuttings (URC) about 5 years ago (2001).
  • We currently purchase about 500,000 annually from all the major perennial URC producers, Yoder, Florexpo (McGregor), and Maya Crops (Foremostco).
  • North Creek grows over 400 different taxa of perennials. We purchase about 70 taxa as unrooted cuttings. Some of the genera we purchase are: Achillea, Agastache, Aster, Coreopsis, Eupatorium, Gaura, Phlox, Salvia, Sedum, and Veronica.
  • Offshore-unrooted cuttings currently make up about 8% of our total yearly production.
