How to grow a rose plug from a potato

Whether perennials, flowers, shrubs and a wide variety of plants, cuttings are widely used in gardening. To make it, the gardener must take part of his plant by grafting and create a new plant in water or soil (in pots or buckets) from this piece. Ecological and economic, this vegetative propagation method, which is less restrictive than seedlings, is not always a success. However, to succeed in this delicate step of the rose bush, we have a tip that ensures effective rose cutting. With this tutorial, you can get beautiful roses thanks to a little elbow fat and a few potatoes!

Good to know: Gardeners can also make their own rooting hormone. This promotes healing of the plant, strengthens the root system and promotes successful surgery.

What do you need:

– A small plot (sunny if possible) where you want to see your roses grow

– As many rose cuttings as potatoes

– Lapio

– Cutter

– Fertilizer

How to make a rose cut?

1. Start by uprooting the area where your roses will grow, and then dig holes at least 20 inches deep.

2. Add fertilizer and water.

3. Then prepare your cuttings, the branches should be about 50 centimeters, which cut at the base at an angle of 45 °.

4. Remove all leaves from the stem and plant each in the middle of the potato. (Be careful not to pierce the potatoes completely!)

5. All you have to do is put the stems in moistened soil, cover and water once more. After a few weeks, you should see the first buds emerging.

Once the roses are established, do not hesitate to protect and strengthen them with natural tips. Green manure and other natural repellents will give you long-lasting flowering. It is enough that you can enjoy the results of your work for a long time!
