potatos as a way to propagate roses
You all are going to think I grow nothing but roses and that couldn't be farther from the truth ! But I ran across this idea in the spring that some people propagate roses by taking a potato, making a slit in it, sticking the rose cutting in and then burying the potato (with the cutting sticking out to get light of course). I had to try that when I read about it and instead of new roses I have new potatoes :)
It was fun and the potatoes are a bonus but my question is, what botanical science may there be behind this idea?? I will try it again next year if there is real merit in this. Certainly it's easy to do!
