Gee, I thought maybe I had one of the Chihuly plants, but no, mine are not that beautiful!

Are the cuttings in your GH, or were they started outside? Which method did you like the best?

I want to do some rose cuttings this summer, so I could use the info.

The one in near the canning jar I started right where it is. The one beside it I started in the greenhouse, The baggie one I started in the house early spring , moved to the greenhouse and planted in the fall in a permanent well possibly permanent place . The cold bed you see is still housing and I am hoping is keeping alive one of the others I started in the house .

I know it is still very early in the season, but do you have a favorite way of rooting them yet, or are they still in trial mode?

My favorite is actually the canning jar method...quick easy and pretty much takes care of itself!! I have a lot of canning jars too.

Do you tip it to let out extra heat? I've never really understood how the jar system worked. I'd be afraid of cooking my cutting. Do you put it in a pretty shady spot?

No I think because it is in the ground it works out differently than if it where in glass in the greenhouse. I have late afternoon shade here. There are probably 6 full hours of sun

How long do you leave it under the jar, and what time of year is it? I am assuming early summer? Or do you do this in the fall when temps are lower?

This one is so pretty. The pix does not do it justice. Maybe I'll be able to get a better shot later on. This is 'La Marne'. This one is from Rogue Valley Roses.

All right. So good to see you are getting out and playing in the gardens again. I need to get some of the rose bands I ordered planted today too. Boy is gone with G-ma today so I should be able to get something accomplished. Big Grin
Have a fine day!

Morden Sunrise started blooming 2 days ago. When I get outside in the gardens I should have an open bloom on Sunsprite, I'm so looking forward to that. Smells heavenly!

arejay......you are in maine. i am in texas. in summer my temps are triple digit. so it wouldn't prob. work too good trying to root roses then, right? i am going to think about this for the fall though. how long do you think it takes to root with them in the ground covered with a jar? how long of a cutting do you use? does every cutting root this way?

mamajack,
I had wondered about that too. Seems like a jar would get pretty hot in the summertime. I'm not having much luck starting cuttings even in the spring! I think I'm going to attempt the layering technique next. Have you ever tried that?

'Winnepeg Parks' from the Parkland Series. This amazing rose blooms all summer long. It has no scent, but it sure does color up my garden!

Whoops I didn't see the questions until right now!! (Hi Mamajack,good to see you.)
I know it is hot down there well I have heard that Mama as I have never visited Texas,but I think it will still work I would try in your normal planting times early spring or early fall, that's when you plant right?Ive tried all different sizes the same as all other plants from cuttings, I don't think they would work from too small a cutting 6 in or better, is my suggestion.There is some kind of natural process I think there is a name for it, maybe Chelle will find it. The glass at the ground like that I mean it works as a greenhouse and the water soaks into the ground naturally anyway as for your other plants. Water when needed. I don't know the range of plants that would root this way, guess that is a new project!!

Robin ,
Would it be to late to take a cuting now and try starting it. I know your temps sre cooler than ours right now and I would like to try starting a few myself.
My Chihuly was beautiful this year too.
