Quick rooted roses

Grantgarden2 Zone 5a/bMay 11, 2013

Hello I have started cuttings of Nancy Hall and Baby Elizabeth, and the had rooted in less than one week. Is this normal or just pure luck? I am going to keep the roses due to patents, and be planted in my garden. Also will they survive in my zone without protection? And the container is my rooting rose chamber.

That sounds dang fast to this country girl! What's your setup--are you doing an aquarium pump with heaters in that box? Congratulations!

Yes- please post how you rooted the cuttings. I can root lots of plants, but NOT a rose!

Nancy Hall is no longer under patent so you don't need to worry about propagating it. It's rated to zone 6 but that's the default rating so it's hard to say. In it's favor is the fact that it's now an own root mini so even if it died back to the ground it should come back from the roots. But I'd put some mulch over it for the winter as an added protection.

I couldn't find a Baby Elizabeth so I don't know about that one. Are you sure that's the correct name? Is it also a miniature?

Yes, that is unusually fast for most cuttings in most instances. It CAN occur when every variable just happens to line up just right. Congratulations! Kim

wow nice job!! Mine rooted after about a week and a half. Thats when I saw the itty bitty roots starting to sprout out. I just used honey on the root end before placing into MG potting soil. Not the kind with the moisture crystals. Kept the soil moist and the pots in my yard in a shady area under my patio. No bags, no canopy, no special lights or anything fancy. My pots are actually plastic disposable food containers that I drilled holes in the bottoms for drainage.
