Taking Cuttings

   This morning, I have been working a couple of hours taking cuttings of the Climbing Peace Rose, Madame Isaac Pereire Rose, New Dawn Rose, and the Unknown red Garden Rose. Also, I am trying cuttings of the Salvia May Night, and Salvia Snowhill for the first time. I already have more cuttings in the bed for the variegated Weigela, and Annabelle Hydrangea. Ocaasionally I list rooted plants on ebay, this helps to support my plant and seed habit,lol. A few of these roses will go to my son, and daughter-in-law if they root. If I get roots in a few weeks, I will be sure and post my method. In the past I have had only about 40% of the rose cuttings root. Roses are kind of hit and miss for me.

  1. Good luck with your cuttings.

    It is time to try to get roots before fall... I'm going to try to root a few salvia greggii that I want to repeat in the garden.
