a pinner said.Growing rose cuttings with potatoes. The other day, I read you can propagate roses by sticking rose cuttings in potatoes, and then sticking them in the ground. I decided to try it out using my rose bush, which is blooming like crazy
Growing Roses from ANY cut rose! take a cut rose (at least long) and put in the ground or in a pot about down. put a mason jar over the top place in full sun for 2 months or until it starts to sprout. will have a new rose bush!
The SECRET to propagating roses is said to be the "potato"! TIP: Before planting rose cuttings, push the bottom end into a small potato, which keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but apparently it works really well.
Take 12 roses and root them by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. One year later you will have 12 rose bushes.
