Yet another way to propagate roses

Around a month ago, we were digging out some own-root roses to move to a more appropriate site. We dug out as many roots as we could, but apparently left a few in the ground. Some of the roots that were perhaps 1/4 inch in diameter, had begun to sprout shoots that are now growing into plants. We have removed a few more of the roots and put them into 1 gallon pots filled with good potting soil and they are all putting out shoots. This is a quick and very easy way to produce new plants from own-root roses. Obviously, this will not work on grafted plants.

sounds like you inadvertently took root cuttings!

RE: Yet another way to propagate roses

That is so awesome!

So far I have a zero success rate at taking cuttings... but I have two in the works right now ... maybe I'll have some luck with them!

but that sounds so cool... I'm afraid to try though with my track record!
