Rose propagation: Rose propagation

The propagation of roses can take place in different ways: by cuttings, by division, by seed and by offshoot. The cuttings must be taken in the period in which the plant is at rest, in the autumn period after flowering. This technique can be used for bushy, climbing or miniature roses. As for propagation by offshoot, a flexible stem must be taken at the beginning of summer, it must be folded down and buried (all this must be done without detaching it from the plant). To keep it upright, use hooks and latches. The new roots will be born in spring, at which point it will be possible to divide the seedlings. Propagation by grafting takes place in autumn, just choose the rose seed we prefer and bury it respecting some specific conditions.
