Did you know you could propagate roses? I found this technique for rooting cuttings that seems so easy I want to give it a try. What a frugal way to have a beautiful garden! Growing roses from cuttings.
Try to take your cuttings in the mornings and from what I’ve read, florist roses are not good candidates for this process (but who knows, you might get lucky). You can root roses over the winter or anytime during the growing season depending on your climate.

F.Y.I. If a plant is patented or trademark (such as Knockout Roses) then you can’t legally reproduce them via cuttings.
