How do I make rose cuttings outside?

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

Rose cuttings are usually taken from the last month of summer to the first month of autumn ( middle of August to end of October). To grow them outside, take at least 6, 12 inch cuttings of each type rose in case some don't take. Remove the flowers and cut off all leaves except the two that were underneath the flower. Dip the ends in rooting hormone powder ( for semi hardwood plants) and then make a holes with a pencil 6 inches appart.Push them in far enough so that the set of leaves is resting on the soil. Firm the dirt around the cutting. Keep watered until the fall rains come. Next spring use a mild fertilzer such as fish and don't replant until they have had one year of growth.
