Even though we still have a full foot of snow in the front yard, winter is beginning to wane. Days are longer, the sun is higher in the sky, and the plants in the greenhouse are taking notice.
When I make my weekly assessment of the cuttings, I see more and more of this:
The cuttings that have already rooted are growing new leaves .... and are showing signs of becoming real roses.
I'm repotting the rooted cuttings, taking them from their small 2-inch clear pots to 3 1/2" deep pots. This gives them plenty of room to grow nice, strong root systems.
This is what it's all about.
