I cut off all the heads. Don't they look purty?
I mixed half perlite and half potting soil together. Put it into these pots, which I have had forever and tried to sell at my garage sale.... but no one bought them. Thank goodness, cuz they are perfect for this! I dipped the stems (after cutting off the very bottom tip a little) into rooting hormone, and stuck them into the pots. I hope they will root. I will have twelve rose bushes! Maybe I should try that with my neighbors' lilac bush? By the time we have a house with a real (grass) yard, I could have rose bushes and lilac bushes, all for *free*! (Well except for the cost of the perlite and the rooting hormone...)
