We offer our tree collards in sets of two cuttings; we usually also send a spare. Each cutting has several nodes from which leaves or roots will sprout. Cuttings should be put in pots in good potting soil (with half of the nodes below the soil and half above) and kept moist and in the shade to develop roots for a couple of months before planting out in the garden. Leaves may begin to grow at first but then will stop until good roots are formed.
You'll receive the cuttings with illustrated instructions for rooting them. If you order other items, these cuttings may come separately. They will be sent via Priority US Mail to get them to you fast, and they should be placed in soil as soon as they arrive if possible. If you do not have the pots ready right away, they can be put in a vase with water for a day or two, but realize, a major element of successful propagation is getting them into the soil quickly.
The cost is $15 for a set of three, plus $4.95 postage. We cannot guarantee that all three cuttings will survive -- they may not survive conditions en route, or there may be things in your own area which keep them from being successful -- but even one successful start should produce ample growth and cuttings by next year.
SORRY, WE CANNOT SHIP TREE COLLARD CUTTINGS TO FOREIGN ADDRESSES. If you are in Florida or Texas you should probably order in the fall.
