Rose Cuttings-Developed by Selective Breeding
A new variety of rose-developed by selective breeding-may be propagated by merely cutting the branches into sections, and planting them in the way illustrated earlier. It is of course necessary to have at least one bud, and preferably two or three, on each cutting. Mr. Burbank has developed some very remarkable new varieties of roses, including one that received a gold medal at the St. Louis International Exposition in 1904.
