Sorry for the delay! To take a rose cutting, snip a 6" long stem, remove the lower leaves, dip the cut end in rooting hormone and set it in a container of moistened potting soil. You can root several cuttings in a single container. Once you've set all the cuttings into the potting soil, place 3-4 sticks between the potting soil and the container and drape plastic wrap over the top of the sticks to act as a little greenhouse and to keep humidity around the cuttings. Set the container outdoors in a shady spot and check for moisture every few days. Water if necessary. The cuttings should root in about a month. Good luck with your project!
