What is a bare-rooted cutting?

Bare-rooted cuttings are sold as 20-25 cm semi-hardwood lengths, with both roots and developing foliage (additional length). In preparation for shipping, some of the foliage is removed (this minimises plant distress during transit) the soil is washed away and the roots wrapped in moist packing material. Our cuttings are initially either water rooted or soil rooted.

Unrooted cuttings are sold as 20-25cm minimum semi-hardwood lengths, with no roots or foliage. In preparation for shipping the base of the cutting is wrapped in moist packing material.

Are Angel's Trumpets dangerous?

There is alot of misinformation about these plants in circulation, due largely to these plants having been used in some cultures as an hallucinogenic drug. However, like many common garden plants, all parts of Brugmansia are potentially toxic only if consumed. Handling thse plants poses no risk.

Our cuttings are a minimum 20-25cm in length. Roots and leaves (applies to rooted cuttings) are extra length. A word of advice if we may... beware sellers who try to sell you 10cm length cuttings. I've been on the receiving end as a buyer a few times recently and been sold these tiny lengths and unfortunately they don't often survive.

When do Brugmansia flower?

Brugmansia flower all year round, but not as much in cooler weather, when growth slows. Brugmansia start producing flowers, above where they form a Y section in their branches. Our rooted plants are cuttings taken from above th Y, which means even though young plants, the plant will generally begin producing flowers relatively quickly. It's not uncommon to see a cutting less than 30cm in height, produce a flower that is bigger than the plant itself (see image).

Unrooted cuttings looking sickly?

No plant comes with a guarantee of success and this is obviously due to many different variables... from your own skills and know how, to growing conditions etc. Whilst brugmansia (unrooted cuttings) are very easy to propagate and we have exceptional feedback from customers with regards quality... from time to time losses are inevitable for everyone, myself included. Watch a video I've put together for some tips on how you might manage an unrooted cutting that appears to be struggling. Any information we provide, are suggestions for your consideration. You should do your own independent research to determine what works best for you in your growing environment. We do not provide a growing advice service, other than the information contained on our website.

Do you guarantee customers having success growing plants and/ seeds?

As with any plant/seed, many factors impact upon growing success, from your unique climatic conditions, to the level of care you provide and your growing skills and knowledge themselves, so the sort answer is no, we do not offer any guarantee and/ refund for any items you are unsuccessful in growing. Any purchase from us, is acceptance of these terms of sale.
