Dividing a Rose Bush


Anonymous added on September 23, 2015 | Answered

I have my mom's rose bush. My daughters all want starts of the plant, but I'm not sure exactly how to divide the root without damaging the plant. Can you please tell me the best way to do this? Her plant has been in the family for several years and I don't want to damage it. Also, I have some bulbs from daffodils I moved from my previous home. How is the best way to store them for planting in the spring (or can I go ahead and plant them now?)? Thank you!

If you want to propagate, that means to make new plants by rooting cuttings, division, or starting seeds. Here are a couple of articles that have more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rockrose/how-to-grow-rockrose-shrubs.htm

Plant the Daffodil bulbs in fall.

Here are links for information on growing Daffodil bulbs.
