    HELP! I need help with rooting roses.

    My best friend died on 2/22.  Her funeral was 2/24 which was a Saturday.  On Monday I visited her grave and took some cuttings of 4 different roses - hothouse of course.  Two of them died but two are showing some leaf growth.  I'm rooting them the way my grandmother (quite the gardener) did.  I just put the cuttings in a glass of water in a sunny window and cut the bloom off when they died.  I also slit the bottom of the cutting.  As I said two of them are showing leaf growth but so far no roots.  I'd really love for these to live as they are so sentimental.  Any advice?  I live in Alabama so we have hot summers - it's supposed to be close to 80 for the rest of the week.

    Thanks for any information - Cheryl.

    These are florist roses grown in green houses. They are not suitable for propagating and will not survive outdoors. Sorry for the bad news.
