Hello gardeners! [Smile] I have a problem. We are moving and there are a couple of my roses that i want to take cuttings of. only problem is is that they have already started to bloom for the season. is it too late to take cuttings? the two roses in question i have no idea what they are as they were planted by theh people who owned this house before us but according to the nieghbors had been their for 40+ years. I would appreciate any input. i have never grown roses from cuttings before thanks! [Smile]

Try to find stems that haven't bloomed yet. If you can't, cut off the blooms and buds so it doesn't waste energy trying to bloom instead of rooting. Take several cuttings in case some don't make it.
