time of propagation

I have a few questions about propagation. I just today took a section off of my rather sad looking rose, I don't know what kind it is, I inherited it from my mother, and I am told it is an english rose. I took a section about 7 inches off and dipped the end in rooting hormone, and placed it in sterile potting soil. How long will this take to root? I also plan on hybridizing some of my other roses, that are about to bloom. How do you recommend I do this? thanks for the help!

RE: time of propagation

You can follow the instructions on my web site, if you'd like. I put a photo tutorial there to help other gardeners learn to root roses (and other plants, too) I also do classes, but you're a little far away. :)

The time it takes to form roots varies ... for me, Lullaby made roots to the walls of its pot in 3 weeks ... others take 6, 8, or even 10 weeks. If your cutting remains green at the soil line, there's a chance that it will form roots. Patience is the main ingredient in propagation ... it's the hardest part, IMO.

RE: time of propagation

Connie is so right. I am using her instructions and I have one cutting that 3 weeks later rooted and has new growth and others that I rooted 6 weeks ago that are still green but no new leaves or just starting to grow leaves.
