I have rose cuttings. I tried with some success last year and soon I will know how well it succeeded as the snow will go...I know it will.. The greenhouse is covered in snow still today the ice is more than I dare to attempt to shovel my way through it. But, I can't wait any longer...So I am going to root these cuttings without the luxury of the things we all would rather have... I have been told by someone who I cant recall but honey is supposed to be a good rooting agent I hear it helps fight any of the rooting diseases we have all met...So off I go starting there and I have a plastic container that I keep dried lemon balm in (which is empty I used it all) its been a long winter... and this will be a process. Any input is much appreciated jump in anytime!! Group hug The cuttings arrived the same day as this photo 03/22/11 This is 03/24/11Stay tuned!!

So, what do you do? Soak the end of the cutting in honey, then push it into the potting mix? What's the lemon balm for? Am I asking too many questions yet? *Blush*

Never too many questions. Yes I was out of rooting hormaone so I used honey but I planted them in an enclosed pot did you see the container with the white lid? THen I transplanted whe it was ready in to yellow pot. THe others are planted in a cold bed and the jar goes down over them. THat is a more positive it will grow but a little faster. I have to run to town Ill finish tonight. Lemon Balm I dont see it but I was probably rooting cuttings if you see it...or making tea it was cold that day could have been either Group hug

How big are the cuttings? You take a cutting, dip it in honey or root hormone. Then place them in dirt or water? Do they have to be under a glass container?

The reason for the container is for the humidity for the roses. I've stuck them in sand. Thumb of 2011-06-20/Ridesredmule/18532f

Charleen, that is so pretty! Looks like a 7 sisters rose? Is it a climber?

I don't know if it is a climber or not. It gets pretty good size. But I don't see it climbing in the trees.
I don't know what it is, Linda. I know it does not have a rosie scent either, but it does smell good.

Yes the jars are like terrariums. I dont put it in dirt in a pot I put it in soil , with pearlite and vermiculite if its completely enclosed other wise in the cold bed with a jar over it...then forget about it...unitl you walk by and notice that is has filled the jar...these are the jars yu see above with the cuttings in them they are probably 8 inches long, then I take the tagges jar out and put the cuttings in the ground and tuck the jar over it,.Thumb of 2011-06-20/arejay59/d14933
