I read quite a few sites on the internet today about taking cutting and rooting roses. Anyone ever had luck
with this or have tips to share from experience? Thanks!
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because they have roses!

I've had good success rooting cutting of mini's in a wet block of oasis. Dip the cutting in Rootone, insert in wet block of oasis, pot in a small pot of potting soil and put in plastic bag. Place in garden in a shaded area and check occasionally for new growth. When they start to put out new leaves they are rooted. The traditional way to do H.T.'s and other larger roses is what I call "bottle babies", Take a nice cutting of the rose, strip off bottom leaves, dip in rootone and plant. Cover with a fruit bottle which has been muddied inside. A percentage will root. Good luck......

Paul, what is a fruit bottle?
Linda, keep us updated on how it goes! You are not all that far from me so I'm curious how long it takes to root them outdoors. Now is the perfect time....before the heat gets here.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

A canning jar like 'Ball'. Something like a large empty pickle bottle would work.......
