Multiply roses by cuttings

The Content Of The Article:

In the nursery almost all roses are propagated by refinement. It is used in early summer, an eye of the noble variety in the seedling pad. It then drifts out in the course of the season and forms the main drive, from which then the new rose is pulled. This propagation method works for all roses, but needs a good preparation, because the rose seedlings have to be planted in the year before. In addition, the finishing technique called Okulation needs practice and experience to achieve good growth results.

For lay people much easier is the propagation through cuttings. Although it does not work so well on some bedding and red roses, shrubs, climbing or rambler roses and, above all, groundcover roses, the growth results are quite acceptable.

New roses from cuttings: simple and fast

The best time for the propagation of roses by cuttings is late July or early August, when the annual shoots are already well wooded. Cut a roughly pencil-long cut from such a shoot. The tip with possible flowering is removed a few millimeters above a well-formed leaf, below you separate the cutting a few millimeters under a leaf or a bud. Then remove all leaves, only the top leave it. Place the cut cuttings in water glasses until they are sorted by variety.

Alternatively, you can put the rose cuttings after cutting in a shady, somewhat sheltered place in the garden in loose, humus rich soil. It is best to prick the holes with a hand scoop and dip the cuttings briefly with the lower end in rooting powder (for example Neudofix). They are then inserted into the soil until just below the leaf approach.

Label the different types of roses with labels and thoroughly water the cuttings bed. Then it is covered with a film tunnel and kept evenly moist. The cuttings usually start to drift next spring. The new shoots you should tee off several times during the season, so they branch well. In autumn, the young rose plants have enough roots. Now you can take them out of the cutting bed and move them to the designated place in the garden.
