@beckers1974 I took this one last week from one of my late father in laws' roses. Had taken two earlier in the year but they didn't take so followed Carol Kleins' advice on GW a couple of weeks back and took a larger cutting, in a clay pot in compost mixed with some grit. Hey presto! I have a new leaf forming! I'm over the moon! 🌝 hope I manage to keep it going now! #cuttings

That's superb! I've yet to do a rose cutting - maybe next year! Took cuttings from my basket earlier - that wasn't fun in the strong wind! They kept blowing away! πŸ™ˆ They were flagging by the time I got around to working on them but look a bit better now. At least there are loads of seed pods as a back up!
