Leaves of 'Excelsa' (left) and 'Turners Crimson' (right). The 'Excelsa' are a little small because it is in a pot. My garden 8/12/18.

In the U.K. the beginning of October is a good time to try and strike some rose cuttings. I make up a compost of sharp grit and sand with a little compost too. I bury two thirds of the cuttings around the edge of the pot in this medium. 6 litre David Austin pots are very good for this purpose. Then place in a sheltered sunny place for the winter. By mid-April the cuttings should start to produce shoots and leaves. I gently tip them out and any that have started to root or formed a reasonable callous I pot up individually in homemade compost. Some will be ready to plant out by July, others can wait until the following spring. I find this way prevents a lot of root damage the cuttings would get if they were struck in the ground. It works well for Hydrangeas too. My garden, 18/10/18.
