a pinner said.Growing rose cuttings with potatoes. The other day, I read you can propagate roses by sticking rose cuttings in potatoes, and then sticking them in the ground. I decided to try it out using my rose bush, which is blooming like crazy

Never waste cut roses, ladies.   Did You know that You can grow roses from cuttings?  Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes and then bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peat moss  top soil.  The potatoes keep the stems moist  help develop the root systems. It's a perfectly simple way to multiply Your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.

The SECRET to propagating roses is said to be the "potato"! TIP: Before planting rose cuttings, push the bottom end into a small potato, which keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but apparently it works really well.
