I learned this technique while volunteering with Superior Blooms Garden Club in a local nursing home. One of the ladies said, to take a cutting in the fall, stick it in the ground, cover it with a Mason jar and leave it alone. In the spring I would have a rose bush. I tried it last year and it worked. I am doing it again this year. I don’t have Mason jars so I improvised.
|Using this technique, I started this Knock-Out Rose in the fall of 2012.|
|I have a few starts in the greenhouse. They are rooting but not as well as the ones in the ground.|
Back to hibernation until I have something else I want to share.
