    Believe it or not, potatoes! Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes, and them bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peet moss and top soil. The potatoes keep the stems moist and help develop the root systems. It's a perfectly simple way to multiply your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.

    use rooting hormone on cut ends and plant in moist potting soil with lots of light.

    The way the professionals do it is to graft your cutting onto an existing root, instant result, no waiting for roots to develop.
