New rose cuttings

Hi, I took 4 cuttings of my rose bush last autumn. All cuttings are doing great, lots of new growth and shoots. Do you think it’s too early to break them up and pot them on? Monty said it takes about a year but these look like bushes in their own right now.

    Any sign of roots at the bottom of the pot?

    How have you got them just now, Greg? Are they all together in one pot?

    I'd have thought it might be too early to pot on, but if they all have good individual root systems, you could. you should be able to see the roots comingout the bottom if they're in a pot together.

    All in one deep pot, the pot I originally bought the roses in. They are David Austin roses “gentle Hermione”. I never knew it was this easy to propagate, have four new roses for next to nothing.

    there are a few fleshy roots starting to appear through the bottom, not much but definitely root. I think I’ll leave potting them on for a few weeks more, just to be safe.

    they look very healthy.

    propagating is such fun!
