Burd-Kroft Propagation is a wholesale propagation nursery located 35 minutes west of London Ontario in the township of Strathroy-Caradoc. Owned and operated by married couple Kody Van der Kroft and Pamela Burdick. Burd-Kroft Propagation has been propagating since 2009.  In addition to propagating flowering shrubs and evergreens, Burd-Kroft Propagation also supplies Curly Willow, Pussy Willow and Dogwood branches for Winter Arrangements to garden centres. 

Burd-Kroft Propagation propagates approximately 145 varieties ornamental plants such as Barberries, Buddlejas,  Quinces, Dogwoods, Euonymus, Forsythias, Grasses, Hibiscus, Hydrangeas, Magnolias, Potentillas,  Spireas, Weigelas and many more.  In addition, various varieties of Taxus and Cedars are propagated.  Liners are made in an Ellepot with dimensions of 6.25cm x 6.25cm x 7.50cm (2.5" x 2.5" x 3"). This size is equivalent to a 2.5" pot. There are 32 cuttings per tray. The ornamental grasses are in 50 cell plugs and all evergreen cuttings are barerooted. Some customers have planted  Willow and Buddleja liners into 1 gals which became saleable in the fall of the same year. Most customers will pot the liners directly into a 2 gal pot. 

Burd-Kroft Propagation has acquired the license to propagate Hibiscus syriacus 'Carpa' Show Time TM CPBR #4283.   Hibiscus Show Time TM has green with yellow and white variegated foliage.  It has soft lavender double flowers with a bold red center. Burd-Kroft Propagation is the sole nursery in Canada allowed to propagate this unique variegated Rose of Sharon (as seen below).

Burd-Kroft Propagation liners require one year to establish roots and growth, therefore customers are asked to order one year in advance. The due date that is assigned is based on the best time to make all varieties of cuttings. Some varieties need to be made in late June or early July therefore Pam and Kody prefer customers to order by the due date. Burd-Kroft Propagation will make extra cuttings for all the varieties that have been ordered by customers, however, to increase the chance that everyone receives the plants that they want, Pam and Kody ask that orders be placed by the due date. A tentative availability is posted throughout the winter months of the surplus of liners.  Customers are welcome to order from the availability at any time throughout the year.  

 

Burd-Kroft Propagation is an approved facility of the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) Canadian Japanese Beetle Greenhouse Plant Program and is certified under the CFIA Canadian Barberry Certification Program.
