Taking rose cuttings | Greenhouse Gardening Equipment & Tips | Scoop.it

"My allotment neighbour has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato!

It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works."
