Propagate Roses - Cut 8 to 9 inches of a long stem rose at 45-degree angle. Remove spent blooms, leaves, or rose hips. Dip stem in cinnamon. Take a potato, remove any "eyes". Cut it in half and bore a hollow for rose stem. Plant about 4 inches into the ground or pot with moist soil. Cover with a glass jar. Planting on the north side will give the roses soft morning sun. Water to keep the soil moist, but do not soak soil. Transplant in about two months. loved and pinned by http://omved.com/
Boxwood is very easy to propagate. In the spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. For best effect, group five to seven stems together, as pictured, to resemble an entire plant. Plunge this group into soil that has been amended with copious quantities of peat moss or leaf mold. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six weeks.
