 How roses are grown

     This is a continuation of last week’s article on roses; if you missed that article you can view it online at ladatanews com, in the archives look for the issue of June 23-29th, 2012. Roses are propagated in two ways; one way of propagating roses is grafting a bud on to a root stock.  When a Rose is grafted, the bud eye is removed from one rose bush, a slit is made into another rose bush (this bush is called the root stock) and the bud from the first bush is placed into the pocket made in the second bush and wrapped in place.  As that bud begins to grow out, that point is what is called the “bud union. ”
