rose cuttings: note to self

Note to self: do NOT put rose cuttings in a plastic bag, as much as you want to (and I know you can't help yourself). Photo to help you remember: Pot in front was 5 days after cuttings were in plastic bag. Pot in back, not in plastic bag. See? Do you want the leaves to yellow? Then don't do it. Both cuttings from 'Winchester Cathedral', using the method I developed last year. Rosemary is different, even thought they both start with "rose." Put rosemary in a plastic bag (thus the plastic bags in the photo), cuttings in perlite only, no peat or they will rot.
