Posted on July 31 2017
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week, we’re giving you a ingenious way to grow roses by using potatoes! Growing roses can be a challenge for any gardener, especially when trying to get them started in the beginning. One of the easiest ways to grow roses is by using cuttings—or the stems of previous roses. They can be finicky to start at first, but with this creative tip, growing roses will be a breeze. Simply take a the rose cutting, and a potato, and shove the former into the latter. Now that the stem in secured in the potato, bury the potato. It may seem odd, but the developed potato will be able to keep the cutting moist while it is trying to form its root system. Once it is developed, the potato will then be able to supply nutrients, ensuring that your rose will grow to be strong and luscious. Just be sure to water it every now and then!
