On the youtube advice of John Lord, I tried propagating roses by sticking cuttings in the ground in Oct/Nov...I had some I am not sure what to do. I also had 1 out of 3 root in potting soil..that I will pot up when it gets bigger.

If you tried propagating rose, please give an did it go? Did you get to bloom stage?

(Also looking for an update from Beth too)

That's great, Annie! Just let the potted ones grow bigger for a while before you plant them. The ones in the ground I would fence or mark very well to protect them while they are so small. I've accidentally stepped on tiny cuttings, boo hoo!

I had pretty miserable results this time around. I got too anxious to see progress and many of the cuttings got dried out, and then some I didn't harden off slow enough and they got shocked and died. Next fall I will be less impatient and let them sit for at least 2 months before I even look in the baggies!! I only got a handful of the 32 varieties of ones from UC Davis to root. And not even very many extras of the ones that did root! The best one was BRONZE MASTERPIECE. I think I got 5 or 6 of it to root. Even some of my own roses that I was rooting for others didn't go. Those mostly just didn't root. I didn't mess with them too much. I really need to get a greenhouse! I think that will help. I have 4 varieties of florist roses that I will be checking next week. Hopefully something rooted, but I'm not holding my breath. They are notorious for being hard to root. But all in all, it's been a fun experience, and experiment. I know now what to and NOT to do for the next time.

These are some of the successes...

These are five from last year that I overwintered on a windowsill. Doing great and need repotting, but are loving their little vacation outside.These five are Autumn Sunset, Windrush, Abraham Darby, Seafoam, and a NOID possibly Wind Chimes. The two cuttings of Quietness that I put directly in the ground also made it. Of the ones I put in Cold storage, many were killed gnats and died. I treated for them but too late I guess. I have a few that may have made it there. Of the other 33, I'll be happy if Liebeszauber, White Grootendorst, Golden Olymp and Folksinger make it at this point. 😣

This was an especially bad year for deer and rabbit damage. They really tore apart my minatures and thornless roses pretty much to the ground. Yesterday I noticed that one of the uneaten fragments had rooted itself! Sweet Mallie I think! I doubt it will make it but it was fun to see. Those littered pieces of uneaten cane would drive me crazy.

Hiyamakki...Gardener's World says to leave the in-ground cuttings for about a year (move it just before it breaks dormancy), but as Seil says I need to protect it...guess more dollar tree wire waste baskets...starting to think I need to make an order for 24 of them!

I know at least 1/2 of mine did not make it...Guess I will see how many made it when I put baskets over them.

Kind of wonderful, that poking them in the ground in fall works! Hopefully we will all get better at other ways.

I am interested to see progress and blooms from our baby plants!

4 of mine are still going strong. Beth how many of yours are still living?

All of my body bagged roses from the big box stores have made it and are blooming. I have several that I want to try own root, since these are all patent expired.
