Rose cut­tings

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Au­tumn is an ideal time to take rose cut­tings, al­ways of young, semi-ripe shoots about two-thirds the length of a pen­cil. Take sev­eral and af­ter smear­ing bases with a lit­tle honey, insert into a 50-50 mix­ture of river sand and pot­ting soil. Keep out of the sun and the soil moist and many will have formed roots by late spring. Trans­plant the fol­low­ing win­ter.
