I'm hoping one of you can help out on this one please?
My cousin is in a hospice and when I visited the other week we wandered past the most beautiful rose. It's a climber and although I don't know the varity it reminds me of one we had at our Grans house which was called Alexandra, what I would call old fashioned and with the most beautiful scent.
Anyway he very kindly liberated a cutting for me, working on the theory I would get in trouble but he wouldn't.
I took it home an stuck it in some water, which has worked previously for me, nothing fancy pants just in water and roots start sprouting.
Anyway, the cutting foxed me, it flopped over and looked very sorry for it's self. To try and save the day a bit I decided to stick it in some potting comport, this seem to work every time for his mum!
It's still a floppy plant! do I just need to be patient or it it nearly curtains for the cutting? at the moment it's clearly still alive, the leaves are still a healthy green it's just the stem which isn't too happy
Thanks for your help
