what an awesome idea... "When my sister was married last year, I took the roses from her bouquet and rooted 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. This year, on her first anniversary, my sister received a gift that could never be replace: 12 rose bushes from her wedding bouquet." # Pin++ for Pinterest #
Where to cut roses to help them grow bushy and flower more... after blooming cut just above an eye(shown on pic) in early spring you cut the roses all the way down... just above ground at the third eye....
Settlers used this method to keep their cutting alive until they arrived to their destination. (Pencil size stems are best.) This demonstration uses roses that were given to her. "You can keep on enjoying them, by cutting the stem, inserting them in a potato and planting them!" Be sure to chose varieties that will grow well where you live from non-patented plants.
