Need instructions for winter cutting
I'm going to be in Eugene, OR, February 25-28, and want to take some cuttings of a beautiful old rose in a neighborhood where I used to live. I have never rooted rose cuttings before, nor have I taken dormant hardwood cuttings, and I'm looking for some specific instructions as to the best way to go about it.
What size and diameter should my cuttings be? Should it be from last year's canes, or from older wood?
How do I pack them to survive 12-24 hours?
When I get them home (Puget Sound area) what is the best way to root them? Indoors? Outdoors? What kind of medium?
I hope somebody can help me out. I used to walk by that rose nearly every day, and I really want to bring it to my new home.
