Place the prepared cutting into the potato, but do not push it clear through. Plant the potato and cutting out in a garden area with at least 3 inches of good soil covering it, tamp lightly and water it in. Place a jar or a wall-o-water around the planted cutting.
Peel your chosen potato. Any waste can be added to your compost heap.
Rooting roses in potatoes requires the stem of the cutting to be placed in the potato. The best way to do this without damaging the cutting, is to manually make a hole.
Carefully make a 3 inch hole in the potato with the screwdriver or drill bit. The diameter of the hole should be roughly the same size as the cuttings stem. As you make the hole don’t split the potato.
The process is called 'impeaching'. The reason is: it was first done with peaches. You need to cut your trimmings at an angle and soak these in water until these grow tiny roots. After that you can carve out a Potato like a Tiny Flower Pot to Protect the young roots from Highly Acidic Soil.
The reason it works is because Potatoes not only have potassium, also:
A. Potatoes rot quicker than the roots grow.
B. Potatoes contain a degree of bismuth that releases in the soil upon rot to calm the PH.
I have heard about this method too so I decided to do some more research to see what I could find. Surprisingly after reading what others have said, I found that this might not be the "miracle method" that we think it is. According to this video, the fact that the potato rots will also cause the rose stem to rot and roots won't grow. I have not done this yet, and after seeing this video, I most likely won't even try it. Take a look at this video and see if you agree - or not.
To be fair, here's a video showing the exact process of using a potato to root a rose clipping.
The only real difference that I noticed was that the person in the "debunking" buried the potato a lot deeper than the instructional video. Maybe that's why it didn't work. At least you have both sides of the answer. Wishing you the best.
It's easier than you think. Here's a link:

This works for some people and fails for others even though they have followed this to the letter:
You are supposed to push a 5-6" stem of rose into the potato and then plant it up in a pot and water it as normal. The potato is supposed to feed the stem until it grows roots.
Sadly, it didn't work for me, but it might work for you.............
A couple of new facts to keep in mind:
"Your clipping will need to come from a mature rose bush with flowers around 200 mm long. Once you have your clippings, keep them moist in a bucket of water while you ready your potato."
and "Choose potatoes with higher moisture content like white potatoes or red potatoes."
and Use rooting hormone on the cut stem prior to inserting into the potato. Natural honey is also a natural rooting hormone and can be used.
