Yes, but my post wasn't there. Shrug! so I copied what I posted.
Edit: thank you Greene

This is what I did way back when:
Mix 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 perlite, and 1/3 vermiculite really well. Make sure all the mixture has been wet and is still damp. Take the cutting, in the morning on new wood, about 5" to 6" long, cut just below a set of leaves, trim all the bottom leaves off but the last three or four leaves. If there is a rose bud on the cutting, be sure you cut it off too. I used rooting powder on the cut end and even on the areas where the leaves were removed. I used a pencil I make a hole in the potting mixture so not to rub off any of the rooting hormone. I do remember using Osmocote as a fertilizer when the cutting was potted. I placed the potted cutting in the shade in my yard and very lightly watered them about three times during the day. I did not cover any of the cuttings.
After the cuttings started to grow I don't remember if I fertilize them, if I did I'm sure I would have used the Osmocote again. I'm sure some roses are easier to root than others. I've never had any luck of my Altissimo, but I think almost every cutting of Sally Homes took. Old Garden Roses are pretty easy to propagate too.
