When you prune roses this year, try rooting some. Make cuttings pencil-thick or slightly less, six inches long and cut above one node and below another. Cut the upper end straight across and cut the lower end on a slant to expose more stem and so you don’t stick them upside down. If leaves are present, remove them from the lower half of the cutting, dip it in Hormex, and stick it into damp media such as well-drained potting mix. Oh, and don’t forget to label the cuttings with name and date. Trust me; you’ll forget which is which.
