Antique Roses Cuttings

Antique Roses are also known as Old Fashioned Roses and cuttings used to be shared amongst our grandmothers via cuttings.  Some bloom repeatedly and others bloom in the spring and fall, yet some only  in the spring.  In any event, the blooms, though sometimes small, are numerous and quite gorgeous.  Some are more hardy than others.

Step 1:  Choose a healthy stem with blooms and cut just below a node to remove the stem from the plant.  Keep the plant stem in water as much as possible.

Step 2:  Cut the stem at a 45 degree angle just below a leaf node.  It helps to have the stem under water while you cut.

Step 3:  Fill a pot 3/4 full with a mixture of 3/4 good potting soil and 1/4 course sand.

Step 4:  Pour about 1/4 teaspoon of Soil Moist (in the picture I am using soil moist that has already been saturated with water)  in the pot and stir the Soil Moist into the the upper 1/2 of the soil mixture.

Step 5:  Finish filling the pot with the potting soil mix.  Water well, then poke three holes with a pencil or stick.

Step 6:  Cut the branches into sections, making sure to leave at least one or two leaf stems on the cutting.  The sections will be about 3-6 inches depending on the size of the stem.

Step 7.  Remove the lower leaves and any buds or blossoms.
