How long can I keep these?

barb_roselover_inJuly 14, 2009

I was watering my containers and decided to prune my Cinco de Mayo at the same time. I did not have time to do anything with the cuttings so I stuck them in water in the greenhouse to take care of later. I still haven't had a chance. Do any of you find yourself doing this? When I get the time, should I take the cuttings out, make another cut, put on rooting powder and then plant? I would appreciate any of your comments. - Barb

rose cuttings can last a long time. I'd wrap them up in a damp paper towel and stick them in the fridge until you have the time to work with them.
