Question on care of hardwood cuttings

irish_rose_grower(z7 LI NY)May 6, 2006

I took a couple of hardwood cuttings in the fall and some of them now have leaves growing.

My question is, these are planted in the rose garden along the full grown roses, which are in full sun. Is this ok for these cuttings?

And the ones that are leafing out, does this mean they have rooted?

What do you think the survival chance is for these cuttings to live and get bigger?

Thanks

I've had them leaf out surprisingly far with no roots. It may already be far enough along in the season for those to have failed already, though.

Unless it's a very crowded bed, or they are particularly weak growers own-root, they should eventually be fine.

Mad gallica - thank you very much. I'm hoping that these rooted babies make it. I'm hoping to get at least 2 or 3 plants out of the 10 cuttings I tried outdoors over the winter.
