My rooting results from the burrito method.

I hadn't prune my roses from last year so I thought I would give it a try when I pruned them April 1st. I figured, what did I have to lose. I had pretty good results.

Since it has been over 3 weeks I will go ahead and plant them. From what I have read on various posts, it would not do any good to wait for ones that haven't calloused to do so. It would drain the cutting of vigor.

Here are the pictures and results.

What's the burrito method? Is there an earlier post on here describing it?

RE: My rooting results from the burrito method.

Grandmothers-rose started a long thread on it. I have linked it below. There is a lot of information on it there. Basically you wrap cuttings in damp not dripping newspaper, after dipping ends in rooting hormone, then put in plastic bags sealed for 2 weeks. Store in a cool dark place. It works better with last year's wood rather than green wood. I think I got it right, or at least that is the way I did it.
