How Long Are Cuttings Viable?

Herbaceous cuttings require planting immediately to prevent stem moisture loss. It is possible to store softwood and semi-hardwood cuttings in a moist plastic bag placed in a refrigerator overnight, but only if necessary. Store hardwood cuttings taken in late fall in a box filled with moist peat moss until planting in early spring.
