The Results of the Mason Jar Rose Propagation

If you recall, last fall I shared with you how Mrs. Watson at the nursing home gave me her tip on propagating roses. Basically she took a cutting in the fall, stuck it in the ground, covered it with a Mason jar and left it alone until spring. That is exactly what I did with these roses (except, since I didn’t have Mason jars, I substituted glass vases and plastic containers.) These are the results. It can’t get much easier than this!

I also put some cuttings in the greenhouse. They are quite a bit larger than the ones grown under the vases, but if one doesn’t have a greenhouse, the jars worked very well.
By the way, if I promised you a Peggy Martin Rose and you haven't received it, please let me know.
