???'s about old fashioned rose bush
HI peeps. I'm a gardener but not a rose gardener. A friend of mine gave me a bag of rooted rose stems a few years ago. I plopped them in the ground and they did well. When we moved 3 years ago, I dug them and brought them with me. They didn't like the mid July move but eventually recovered and are doing beautiful. I call them old fashioned rose bushes, I don't know the real name. They have the single pink pedals, small thorns all the way up the stems, it is very VERY fragrant is a 1 time bloomer.
I have a few questions. . .
1 Can I propagate the hips?
2 I want to keep it my desired size and height. I remember my dad telling me how to trim roses, (back to the 1st 5th leaf, I think) does that apply to this type of rose?
3 I tried an experiment of propagating by sticking a small cutting in the soil underneath the bush, covered it with a jar and praying for a new plant. If this works, how long does it usually take and when will I know if it did work?
Thanks to any comments,
