The tender ones rooted but the thicker stem ones did too, the tender one seem to grow faster and easier....That one is fuller now....

Along the way to being rooted,...did the leaves fall off? I'm following along here to see if I should save the ones I have "going" , Hilarious! or just start over.

Save them!! Some of the leaves fell off are they in the ground and the jar is down tight? Watering around it if it is dry...not in direct all day hot sun?

We need to get charlenesplants to chime in here, she has no problem rooting rose cuttings. Years ago we rooted a cutting of Veilchenblau of a friend and planted it in a shady area and it has done very well. Now we can't seem to root it again, not that we have tried real hard. I do love this rose and it's ability to tolerate a lot of shade.

Okay, I'll save them. They are in bright, indirect light along with all the other cuttings I have going. All the other cuttings I've done, (different plant varieties) have retained their leaves and are actively growing already, that's why I wondered if the rose cuttings had failed.

That's how I have them. I constructed a plastic cover over a wire frame, large enough so that no part of the cutting would touch the plastic. Then every 3 days or so, I've been lifting the cover just long enough to exchange the air. There is some condensation inside, but not enough to drip.

charlenesplants, made the 2nd and 3rd post in this thread. She also ran a rose co-op on mamajack's cubit this Spring. She is south of me so she must know something about rooting in the heat. We have hit 100 in May this year. I will run her down later this evening and see if she can join in. What works for one person, may not work for another. You can not know too many ways to root plants, if that makes any sense.

Wow, that's an amazingly large and very pretty plant, Kenboy.



Thank you Robin. I'll leave them be, maybe they will grow some new leaves soon. I'm slowly getting all my baby band roses in the ground.
I wish there were more minutes in a day! The Eden rose that I planted in December is now 3 ft. tall. Yay!

i saw some people take a veilchenblau and tie it up about 7-8 ft. high. then the rest of it sort of fell like a fountain around it. i really liked the look of it.

I'm not sure where she got it. It is not an old rose, late 1980s by Ralph Moore

My favorite rose was one Maggi's Grandmother brought back from Alaska in 1952. Maggi got a start from a cousin in Washington state and we had it for several years. We are in heavy red clay and when I plant, I add lots of compost. After a few years it sunk and died. It was in full sun and bloomed from Spring to Fall and had a great fragrance. I never seen any Black Spot or PM, just a great rose. We are going to try to find a cousin to fix us up with another and then I will learn how to root roses and pass it around for backups.
