Re: Hello! Rose question...


Bonnie,
I noticed the Antique Rose Emporium site has good info on cuttings, It says
fall is the best time [in Texas : ) hope that's true for the rest of us] to
take cuttings. Pencil thick, 6 inches, make sure there are at least 3 leaf
nodes. Thanks for the link, Nora www.weAREroses.com .

z 6 Idaho, crisp nights, warm days, fall is here. Moving some of the tenders
off the deck into the house. Got best of show for a stem of Rosa polyanthus
"The Fairy" at the county Fair last week. Woo Hoo!
