About a month ago I posted about rooting roses using a mason jar. I find it interesting that the website I used for information on this project was called "Grandma's Mason Jar", since I was rooting my grandmother's rosebush. :o) You can read about "Grandma's Mason Jar HERE.
I'm happy to say the rose cuttings are alive and growing!
Those are Zinnia plants I planted from seeds growing in the soil around the rose cuttings.
The reason I am very happy about the success of the mason jar project is the fact that these cuttings originated from my grandmother's beloved rosebush. The one I previously had in this spot died due to a fire ant hill being built in the roots and also I think because the bush was very old. The house my grandmother lived in doesn't even exist any more, but luckily my mother still had a rosebush she rooted from Grandma's bush and I took these cuttings from that one. I plan to root even more cuttings to insure that our family always has a specimen of Grandma's rosebush.
