Simply multiply roses: The instructions

Although the method of propagating through cuttings is quite simple, you will need a few things as well as sufficient preparation and of course some practical tips.

You need:

  • unfertilized potting soil or normal garden soil

  • some sand or coconut fibers

  • a little clay granules

  • a branch of roses

  • secateurs

  • Plastic bucket or container

  • Plastic bag or bottle

And this is how it’s done:

First, prepare the potting mix.

In a larger bucket, mix the potting soil with the sand or the coconut fibers and the clay granules. The latter binds the excess moisture and makes the soil more permeable. This prevents waterlogging and mold growth.

Now take the already worried Rosenzweig in the hand. For example, biennial, woody branches, fast-growing roses such as climbing, groundcover or rambler roses are best suited for this purpose. Edelrosen, on the other hand, are not recommended for the Steckling method.

Growing roses through cuttings is easier than you think

Just tear off the one branch of the rose branch to create an uneven tail. This can be shortened a bit with pruning shears. The Rosenzweig itself shorten then on about 20 cm in length. It is best to remove the foliage so that the branch does not lose extra liquid.

Place a drainage grid or cloth in a suitable flower pot and pour in your potting mixture until it reaches about one third of the pot. Then put your rose cuttings in the ground and fill them with the rest of the earth. Pour plenty of water afterwards.

You can also put several cuttings in a flower pot

Little trick: In order to keep the moisture evenly and rarely have to re-pour it, it is advisable to attach a small plastic bag with rubber band to the flowerpot. So, so to speak, a mini-greenhouse and the Steckling receives perfect wax conditions. To make this optimal, you can still excrete small holes on the plastic bag with the scissors.

In 3 to 6 weeks then drive the first green leaves on Rosenzweig.

Important tip: Do not fertilize your cutting at first, so that no extra liquid is withdrawn.

Soon the first results will show…
