I received this rose from my boyfriend a few days ago. Isn't it lovely? In my opinion it's perfect, it's one of the prettiest roses I've ever seen:) I plan to root it and plant in my garden!:)

I took these pictures with my smartphone, this is why they're so blurry. In reality, the color of my rose is more intense.

Yes:love: It's a very popular holiday here. Everywhere, you see heart-shaped things, teddy bears and men carrying flower bouquets and chocolates. It's kind of tacky, but I like it:D

Claudine, hope your Valentine's Day was as beautiful as your Rose.

You plane to root the stem you received, are you going to use 1/2 a potatoe to help start the rooting process?

Thank you! I hope that your Valentine's Day is wonderful too!:)
I go on a date in the evening and I already know that my boyfriend bought me more flowers:D:D
I didn't know that a potatoe helps start the rooting process. Thank you for the information, I'll definitely give it a try! Should I just put a raw potato in the water?

Your rose is truly gorgeous Claudine and think it would be a great idea to try and and get it to root - especially as its such a stunner :love: even though store bought roses aren't known to be very good at rooting - I do know that sometimes it does work - particularly if the stem is placed in the garden - in fact if yours is a long stemmed rose - which I think it is - you may well be able to get two cuttings from the one stem - as the cutting only needs to be approx 6 inches long and of course now is a good time of year to get it to root :D

However - if it doesn't work and you do wish to grow the very same rose - I think you will find its called " Mr Lincoln "
Am sure that you will - but hope you have a very special and very happy day :)

Yes, it's a long stemmed rose:) I'll definitely try to get two cuttings from it.

Wow, that is a perfect rose. I like that it has more petals and looks fancier than the average rose you see in a store. I hope you have luck getting it to take root.

Zigs - it's such a lovely idea, this breakfast looks delicious:D:D
ACSAPA - thank you! I really, really want to root it:) So far, I haven't had much luck with rooting stems, but maybe this one will be an exception:)

claudine - You are welcome and am really pleased to hear that you had a lovely day - and extra flowers too :) am also glad that it sounds as though you can get two cuttings from the one stem - I hope it works - especially as I shall now be looking forward to seeing pictures of the beautiful rose bushes that you've grown from your cuttings - forgot to say - but don't forget to remove every single leaf from the cuttings before putting them in the ground - as they stand a much better chance of rooting if you do that :)


zigs - thrilled to hear you had a good day too and think your gift of a virtual breakfast was a wonderful idea - especially as it looks - so tantalizingly good :)

zigs - thats a really lovely thought - especially as receiving just one of those roses would be a wonderful gift - let alone receiving a whole bush of them - that you could look at all year round - but first you would have to persuade Claudine to part with one of her treasured cuttings and am not sure that any one would be too successful on that score :D

No, the virtual breakfast rose is real, got it in a jar of water on the windowsill :)

:oops: I was clearly having another one of those mental block moments - and got confused :confused: thought you meant you wanted to grow a rose like Claudines :D
