Yves Piaget Rose Propagation
Propagation is easy for roses.
To propagate this plant, take stem cuttings 4-8 inches long and plant them in the water out of direct sunlight.
Then, slice the bottoms of the cuttings then place them in rooting hormones. Next, cut off the flower bud and place the cuttings in two inches of potting soil.
After following these steps, place a humidity cover over the cuttings and pots. Check them periodically. After a month or so, these cuttings should have taken root. When this happens, remove the humidity cover. Continue to care for them and let them grow.
You can transplant them in your garden after about 9-12 months. After that, continue to care for them the way you would care for the original plant.
