cuttings question

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 20:10

 Here are some coreopsis cuttings I took this summer . They`ve all rooted well ,but I`m worried that they`re all leggy, can I re-pot them lower next time ,or will that be harmful to the plants ? The parent plant has been really special this summer ,and I would hate to loose it this winter . Thanks Wendy.

I would like to Id these two roses if possible . They are both well grown , and have been in the garden for years .The second rose is a very beautiful rose , very fragrant and will flood the garden with its scent in the evenings . Its grown to about 6 feet in height , and has hardly any barbs on the branches.

The  top rose is a robust plant ,grows to about 7feet high ,flowers profusely twice in the year , no scent to speak of and is full of thorns , terrible to tidy up .but well worth the pain . Hope its not an impossible ask ,Thank you , Wendy.
