Roses

I was given cut roses in a Valentine's bouquet. They are beginning to wilt but to my amazement they all have fresh green sprouts of greenery (about 2 inches) coming from the joints on all the stems. I would love to be able to plant these to mature to a bush. Any suggestions?

It sounds like you have some hardy cut roses there. I will attach a link to an article I wrote on rooting cuttings for you.
