Cuttings

  1. Cuttings of half-ripe wood with a heel in a shaded frame (or cover with plastic bags). Overwinter (or 4-6 weeks) the plants in the frame. Plant out in late spring (watch out for frost). Take cuttings of mature wood of the current season's growth. Select pencil thick shoots in early autumn that are about 20 - 25cm long and plant them in a sheltered position outdoors or in a cold frame. The cuttings can take 12 months to establish but a high percentage of them normally succeed. Rosa banksiae
