Can you root successfully in late spring?

I'm planning some massive pruning of several Camellia varieties.

I'd really rather it do it immediately after they finish blooming, so the specimens can start re-growing in the way I want them to, and not lose as many blossoms for next spring as I will if I do it late fall. But I hate to waste so much propagation material. Thinking of finding the deepest shade I can, nailing some 2X8 pressure treated lumber into a box shape, and half filling with sand/peat mix. Moisten. Insert cuttings and cover with polythene film. I might get less rooting than I would in fall, but as long as i get some, I will be happy.
