How do I plant Confederate Rose cuttings?
Someone gave me some Confederate Rose cuttings that have been rooted in water. I have them in a bucket of water and the roots have gotten longer in the couple weeks that I have had them. I would like to plant these in the ground, but I'm not sure how to plant rooted cuttings. They look like sticks, each about 2 feet long with roots on the bottom couple inches and small leaves on the top inch or so. The rest is just a long bare stick.
So can I plant these now? How do I plant them? Do I need to dig a big planting hole for each one and amend the soil or is that necessary for CR cuttings? How deep should they be planted? How close together should I plant the cuttings? Do I need to cut the tops off after planting them or leave them long with the little leaves at the top?
