I recived some roses and they are spourting new growth.  I bought rooting hormes, my questionis do I plant them in a pot, or in the ground.

I would sugest that you plant them in a pot first with a mixture of peat moss and sand about half and half . Cut the stems just below a leaf node if you can and dip them in the hormone mix. If it is a powder dont use too much as that hinders rather than helps the roots to form. Take off all of the leaves except the very top ones. The cuttings are best about four to six inches long so if you need to trim the top cut them at an angle just above a leaf node and you can plant about a third into the pot.  Water them well and place in a sheltered place and keep moist. If you are lucky they will grow.

Good luck, regards Lulu

Hi, I finally have enough roses to start cutting some and bringing them inside. However, many have drooped in 24-48 hours. Am I cutting them wrong? Should I do anything with the water? Help

When you bring your roses in the house, recut the stems under water. This ensures there are no air bubbles in the stem.

There is a large list of additives said to prolong cut roses. In my experience changing the water every couple of days and reclipping the stems works well too.

Good luck

What do you add to the water after cutting and bringing inside?
