How To Grow Roses From A Cutting


At the last wedding  a friend attended, she took the half-dead roses from the bouquet centerpiece from the table of the reception.

At home, she rooted the roses by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil.

She lovingly kept these moist until rooted and then planted them in a shaded location in her garden.

This year, on the bride’s first anniversary, my friend gave the bride a gift that could never be replaced: 4 rose bushes that came from her wedding.
