I've found it real easy to grow roses (old ramblers and some climbers)
from hardwood cuttings in the late fall. Take cuttings from wood that
is from that year's growth, but which has already hardened - doesn't
need to look green - - dip in rooting hormone and stick in the dirt in
a lightly shaded spot and they will have new growth in the spring.
