Q.growing a rose bush from cane clippings

Zone united kingdom | Anonymous added on July 26, 2018 | Answered

I am trying to grow some roses from cuttings I have placed in water, they seemed to have started to sprout from the bud area. Should I cut the cane below the new growth and plant it? What should I do next? I am not a gardener, and I feel I am wasting time cutting rose canes, I have tried potatoes, planting canes in soil etc, the water method makes me finally feel I am getting somewhere; please help.

Here is an article for you on this topic: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/roses-from-cuttings.htm
Keep in mind that some roses are grafted onto hardier root stock as they are just too weak on their own roots to survive in various climatic conditions, so the newly rooted rosebushes may not survive.
