Growing Roses from Cuttings Rose1
Growing roses from cuttings is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have in your garden, giving life to new plants is almost like helping give birth to a new child.
Our list of 10 steps will make turning cuttings into rose bushes as cinch.
Roses purchased from garden centres are usually on grafted rootstock which gives the plants additional vigor. However most roses will strike readily from cuttings taken of the previous years growth. Growing roses from cuttings is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have in your garden, giving life to new plants is a true wonder.
Growing roses from cuttings. It is easy to share your favourite rose bushes with neighbours, or swap with one another – the most satisfying task in the garden is to make new plants from old.
Don’t throw out the rose clippings when you prune your roses in late winter. Instead, prepare the cuttings and grow some new ones. Roses purchased from garden centres are usually on grafted rootstock which gives the plants additional vigour. However most roses will strike readily from cuttings taken of the previous years growth.

  1. Test the wood. If it is too green it will rot. Remove a thorn. If the stem is green underneath it’s too young. If it’s brown then the wood is right.

  2. Remove the tip of the stem and cut it into sections about 15cm long removing all the leaves. Make the cuts just below a leaf node.

  3. Make sure that you get the cuttings the right way up. To do this the trick is to cut the bottoms straight and the tops on a diagonal. Cuttings won’t grow if you plant them upside down!

  4. Dip the bottom of the cuttings into a hormone cutting powder or gel. If you don’t have these to hand, honey is a very successful alternative.

  5. Prepare your potting media. The ideal combo is 50% potting mix and 50% of either coarse sand or perlite.

  6. Having made the cuttings, bundles them in groups of five. Fill the bottom of a pot about 125mm in diameter. Hold the bundle of cuttings upright in the pot and fill around them with more soil.

  7. Water well and place the pot in a warm sheltered spot in the shade. Make sure to water regularly.

  8. Ensure there is no fertiliser in the soil. This will encourage new leaf growth at the expense of root development, and the fertiliser can burn the newly developed roots. It may take several weeks for the roots to form.

  9. Once the new growth begins to appear, move the pot into a sunnier spot. Don’t separate the cuttings until the roots appear from the bottom of the pot. Then separate them and pot individually

  10. By summer the cuttings should be ready to plant into the garden or give away.
