Roses

Zone New Castle, DE 19720 | Anonymous added on August 29, 2018 | Answered

I want to take a slip from a rose bush at my old home and create a rose plant at my new home. It is a Hi bred Rose from the Winterthur Gardens in Delaware and was first planted in 1957. It is a climber. What do I need and how do I do it? Thank you in advance, Richard Simpson [email protected]

    Contact Winterthur to find out whether your rose is a grafted one or one grown on its own roots. (The info may be on their website.) If it is grafted, results of your cutting may not have the same vigor and winter hardiness as the parent plant. Fall is a good time to propagate from semi-hardwood cuttings, ones that still have some flexibility but not as pliable as new growth. Winter time is for hardwood cuttings. The attached articles discuss the 2 techniques.
