I just received a cutting of a rose in a trade. I thought I was getting a rooted rose but it's a cutting instead. I have no idea how to root it. I do have some rooting hormone. Should I use that on it or is that a bad idea? What are my chances of getting it to root by dipping it in the hormone then sticking it in a flower pot? (Or would it be best to stick it straight into the ground?) I am fairly new to roses & gardening in general so any information that you can share would be so appreciated!

Page thru the forum and look for seedpickers thread on propagation. It is very detailed. Some people have luck sticking a cutting in the ground under a glass jar. Some in pots of potting soil. My first attempt at propagation last year got blown over in a storm, not successful. I am trying again, but it is too soon to tell if they will take.

dixielol, if you go into the sticky at top of the forum you will find a couple of links to threads on rooting roses. Good luck!
