Potato’s for Propagation

This works for other trimmings as well, not just roses. If you already have some bushes/trees you want to expand your garden with, plant the trimmings this way. It will provide them with what they need to thrive and develop healthy root systems.
Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes, and them bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peat 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 or any other garden without spending lots of $$$.
