Did you know that you can grow roses from cuttings?

Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes, and them bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peet moss and top soil. The potatoes keep the stems moist and help develop the root systems. It's a perfectly simple way to multiply your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.

~~OP~~ Nearly every blooming bush can be "cultured" into a new plant.

I will take a broken, or pruned, limb (about 20" long) ... at about 6" & 12" I 'wound' the outer layer of the limb .... trench well mixed composite soil and lay the stem into the trench (being certain to keep the wounded sections covered and well watered.

By the next growing season you should have another beautiful plant.

cut the stem and stick it in where you want it to grow. Cover with a 'cloche', a glass dome. This will keep the moisture in to stabilize the stem.
