I have several established antique roses that I would like to take cuttings from and start some bushes for family members and friends. Can you tell me how to do this?

You can propagate them by cuttings dipped in a rooting hormone and placed in a well-drained rooting medium. Cover with a clear plastic cover to hold in moisture, and place in a bright spot out of direct sunlight. Rooting will occur in 10 days to 2 weeks. You can also try "tip layering" a branch in the soil next to the mother plant.

The following two sites offer a detailed explanation of how to root cuttings as well as how to "layer" a plant.
