Near my house is a beautiful rose growing out of a ditch, it flowers beautifully this time every year.

I would love to try and take a cutting and plant it in my garden in case the farmer knocks the ditch and destroys it

How would I go about growing it from a cutting?

It is just sentimental to me

Is it a dog rose? A wild rose of some type, or an escaped cultivar? Lets see a picture if you can.

Greetings Blank Canvas,
Back in June you were asking about 'reproducing' a rose which grows in a ditch close to you and produces lovely flowers in June. You kinda went no further with the thread so can I get you back on it. If that rose has 'hips' now in November, save a fist of hips and stick em in pots (one per pot) and bury the pots up to their necks in the garden. If they grow plant out the pots next spring and see what happens. It is extremely likely that a rose growing in a ditch is of a self-sufficient variety.

If you did actually take cuttings last June, I'd be very interested to know whether they 'took' and how they're progressing. Sometimes roses like yours are very old strains no longer available on the market (if they ever were)

I took cuttings from an old rose bush during the summer, stuck them in pots of compost and they have started to grow. There were new leaves a few weeks ago. It wasn't exactly a wild rose as it was growing in the yard of an old derelict house belonging to my granduncle. Its there as long as I remember, loaded with deep pink flowers. So hopefully it continues to grow.

I also took fuschia cuttings during the summer and 3 of them flowered about 2 weeks ago. I was delighted. Laughing

Michelle,
I'll be very interested to hear how your cuttings will turn out as roses. We'll have to wait til at least next May. Your cuttings will grow and they will thrive. The question is will they produce the same roses as the parent plant. My guess is they won't. They should revert to a dog rose if (Even 40 years ago) the original was produced by grafting. I'll watch this space. And thank you for the observation.
Shaun
