Newbie, growing roses from cuttings?

Post by Jay » Tue, 02 Jun 1998 04:00:00



I,m fairly new to growing roses. My wife brought home, zone 7b, some
cuttings of a rose from Chicago. We are not sure if it is a climbing or
bush rose. It was planted about 60 years ago by her grandmother and as a
child, my wife admired it. She would like for me to start these for our
garden, but I have never grown roses from cuttings. They are about
pencil size, and some have buds on them. Can I start these cuttings and
if so, then how?

Thanks in advance,
Jason

Check out the American Rose Society web site at http://www.ars.org  Follow
links to "Ask the Experts".  You will see clear instructions on the
subject.  If you can't find them, or if it is unclear, give me (or someone)
a holler.

Some roses are extremely easy to root, some are nearly impossible.  We may
as well assume yours are easy, right?
