Propagating roses from cuttings
I am trying to clone my favourite roses. I do not even know the name of the roses as they were here when we bought the house and the garden. The scent and the colour are my favourite and I collect these petals for my herbal tea mixtures. My herbal grind has been asking for years whether she could have a rose like this. And this is the third year that I try to propagate it.
My failures were propagating in a potato and digging it into a trench. I got some potatoes, but not roses.
I tried in summer, may be they did not like the time.
this time I propagate them at home: i cut the cuttings when they still had no leaves, put them into a mixture of sand and garden compost and keep them in my dining room on the heated floor. The leaves are comming. Whether the roots will come?
i am always successful in propagating geraniums from cuttings. I have my favourite variety and Every spring I grow the fresh ones. But with roses I was not successful.
does anybody have experience with propagating roses this way? I would be grateful for your advice.
