Starting a rose bush and other plants from a cutting (slip). I Remember my Maternal Grandmother and Mother placing rose slips around the flower garden, covered with Mason jars to protect them and get them started. Many a rose bush grew.
rose bushes from s wedding bouquet. Taking a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. keep these moist until rooted & planted them in a shaded location.
Propagate from cuttings, I can’t just toss those cut stems away, putting them to waste. Each stem can make a whole new tree, and fairly easily. So I set up a little propagator for rooting some of these “hardwood cuttings.
Propagate boxwood - take stem cuttings in length and remove lower inch of leaves. Plunge into soil that has been amended with lots of peat moss or leaf mold. Keep cuttings moist. In 6 weeks, you have rooted plants.
