Hi I have an Explorer Rose, the John Cabot variety. They are supposed to be easy to propagate but none of the plant descriptions tell you how. The rose is mildew and black spot resistant. It is good in zone 3, and every other rose I bought for the garden has died. I want to make a few more plants for in the hedge, to cover an arch, and make extras for friends. The rose will grow 12 feet tall so I want some climbing up the side of the house and screening the compost bin from view. The rose blooms all summer until they get snowed on. They are perfect for my area and impossible to get during Covid. They were released in 1967 and the developer passed away some time ago, so it is legal to propagate this rose. If someone could direct me to a "how to" to propagate this rose I would really appreciate it.

Thank you for your time and consideration

Since it sounds like a climber...try this link for Texas Rose Rustlers who got old roses from cemetaries and had to guess how to root them. It shows the difference between climbers and shrub rooting. It seems to be what part you use or where you cut it.

Note: Temperature is important and if you have the cuttings too warm or too cold they tend to rot or cook.
