This is a little idea that I remembered about my Auntie while growing up. She would always be going out to the woods or some abandoned estate somewhere, taking with her a shovel and buckets and a tad of water. ? Why, well it is called rose rustling, looking for old vintage rose bushes. The kind that would bloom like crazy with very little effort. Very tolerant to bugs and diseases. How do you do it , just take a clipping of the stem and place in water. The best water to use in order to root your new found rose , is willow water. It is all natural and not exspensive like root treatments that you can buy. Now you wonder how to get willow water. Find a willow tree, take some clippings submerge in cool , clean water until the water looks cloudy. A few days. The willow water has a natural hormone in it from the willows. Use this water to water any and all young plants either from seed or cutting.Have any questions ? Please feel free to leave a comment, or send me an email. Good day. xxx
