Hi everyone.

I have a question on a subject I dont normally ask about. Awhile ago I read in an article from 1899, (the same article I found the nettle water tactic,) that you can graft roses.

I would like to ask, is it true that you can graft roses? And if it can be done, how do you do it?

Many, in fact most roses are grafted. The ones you buy in the nurseries are all grafted.

Yes, most of them are. You can find out a lot with just a web or youtube search. There is a lot of information out there about grafting roses and other plants. There are fruit cocktail trees with several types of fruit on one tree. I see Adeniums that have different colored flowers all on one tree. Very neat things can be done with grafting!

Hi.

Wow, that was a fast reply! That is very interesting. I was asking because I wanted to try it out sometime, I am just doing research on it first. My great great grandfather left only part of the instructions, not all of it.

Anyway, thanks for getting back so fast!

Give it a try, Jared. I did it a long time ago but haven't tried it recently.
