Pictures of my rose roots! Transplanting my roses.
So, as you know if you've read any of my other postings here... I've been kind of obsessed with propagating roses this year.
During the summer I got 3 new rose bushes from the greenhouse, and visited a rose garden, and looked all around town for pretty roses. I started lots of clippings, and most rooted! When I started this, I was very curious about what a rose's roots actually looked like once a clipping had rooted.
Sometime last year, I started a bunch of clippings of a pink rose my mom and I planted together when I was a child. I forgot about them, and 2 clippings that were in the same pot rooted, and the roots grew together. Today I re-potted all of the pink roses, and separated the ones that grew together. I took some pictures for those of you that are just starting out with propagation, and have not seen this.
All Grown Together :(
Washed the dirt off...
Here's how the roots have grown out of the cutting.
I let this one go for way too long!
It's a monster!
Cute new top growth :)
New little leaf buds.
Yeah! All re-potted.
