    We read of gardeners trying their hand with rose cuttings. So have you tried budding/grafting?

    I use to just bury a few pruning cut offs and had some success and still do it to this day and I get the odd one that grows some roots, none have actually survived here but I had several at the previous home..Maybe the soil was suited or just being in the right place at the right time..Hey we made it somehow to being humans and came from where??,,well most of us.. @Mike Allen ...haha...

      Never tried Mike, I just pop cuttings into a pot and tuck them away in a sheltered spot and ...forget about them until the following year. So far that's always worked , had two 'cuttings' that bloomed last year.:yahoo:.
      Just keeping everything crossed that I have the same success with all the cuttings that I took from some of my parents roses last year.:fingers crossed::fingers crossed::fingers crossed::fingers crossed::fingers crossed:

        I tried grafting last year, I got 2 suckers growing from my hybrid teas so I potted them up to grow some roots and they did. So i grafted them and one of them took, grew one stem and flowered.
        Never tried cuttings because I always thought that they grow better grafted.
