Can I grow my own tree rose?

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

Trees roses take about 3 years to grow. They are first started with an understock on which is budded ,mainly a Rugosa ,which is allowed to only grow one stem . When the cane has reached 3 feet then they bud a floribunda , hybrid tea or modern shrub type rose around the top. This is then allowed to grow for another year. This process does require a sound knowledge of the art of budding roses.
