Never waste cut roses, ladies. Did You know that You can grow roses from cuttings? Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes and then bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peat moss  top soil. The potatoes keep the stems moist  help develop the root systems. Its a perfectly simple way to multiply Your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.

The SECRET to propagating roses is said to be the "potato"! TIP: Before planting rose cuttings, push the bottom end into a small potato, which keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but apparently it works really well.
