For our skimmias, we grow our own parent plants. This works in our benefit, as we are able to control the entire process as we see fit, without having to rely on any third party.
We therefore have a free roam in deciding when to start to create our cuttings, which we most often do mid-June. By working with organic pesticides, the parent plant has the opportunity to become a healthy and strong plant on its own.
For our pernettyas, we also grow our own cuttings. Early in October, we send these cuttings to a highly reputable company that specialises in cuttings and with whom we have collaborated for years. Late April, they return the cuttings to us, after which we directly put them into pots.
