I took 6 cuttings of several different climbing roses and finally some five or six of them are giving me signs that they are growing. The tug test was performed and they all passed it. I have one of them that is showing a sprig of new leaves. Ahhh success.
I have a total of 7 climbing roses. They may all be different but at least they are alive and some of them have a very good root system. They can now stay in their individual planters at least until next spring.
One of the roses is not looking good but is still showing some green. There is another one that still has not shown sprouting. I will say safely that four of them are on their way to establishment. The weather is not helping as we have had a lot of rain and they stay moist most of the time. I am trying to keep them dry by giving them lots of sun. The survivors will be transplanted again into bigger pots before finding them a space in the garden.
This planting is in the Containers Everywhere garden .
