Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

Done. Pricked and transplanted as per above. However because all dropped leaf cuttings are toast for this year - binned last one today - I was restricted to changing out cuttings that have the original leaf after ~3 1/2 months, but no new "leaf growth". Tried a fresh "peat" based potting "soil"and a...

Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

Txs, for the suggestions. I am going with change soil for this years slow ones where cane still green. Use potting mix (sterilized on label) and heavy on vermiculite 50%.

From post mortem examination there are a dozen or more fibrous roots 1 to 2 inches long with majority having what l deem a normal blan...

Re: Size of pot for 12 inch high miniature rose?

Sounds like you are well versed on your rose potting and growing needs, conditions - and pot size is good. South facing walls are premium real-estate for my roses. Plans this year are to see a private 4 acre walled garden via a friend. My roses have about four months of growing but for most part hav...

Re: Size of pot for 12 inch high miniature rose?

From the cold dry continental climate zone, looks like a glazed pot ... not a big fan of them, size looks okay to me for a couple of years if left at least 4 fingers of depth from bottom of root ball and sides (only my way, not Toby Buckland sanctioned :), assume crock(s) in bottom and has drainage ...
