Growing a new rose...

I happened upon this during my third- cup- of- coffee time this morning.  You can read it if you like ...... go to http://www.herbsandoilsworld.com/how-to-grow-roses-from-cuttings/.

My grandmother just put the cutting in the dirt and placed a canning jar over and waited.  (We called them "fruit" jars).  I have rooted several with her method.  Have a happy day.

Peggy, Did you cut the ends any certain way?? I would love to try this. When I read growing roses and saw the potatoes, I laughed.
Thanks for visiting this morning. I love the name Emma. :):) Enjoy your week. xoxo,Susie

My grandmother did the same with her roses and the fruit jars. I've never seen one grow by using potatoes. Hoping you have a terrific Tuesday!

Wonder if it works for forsythia or lilacs? That is the neatest idea yet! Thank you for sharing. That 3rd cup was very helpful!
