Roses don’t just look nice, but they also smell amazing – and their petals are actually edible. Even if growing them seems complicated, you really don’t need to be an expert gardener to do it. But you’ll have to know this simple trick!
With a simple bouquet from a grocery store and a few old potatoes, you can transform your backyard into the rose garden of your dreams!
First, dig a 6-12 inch row in a partially shaded area. Line the base of it with sand to hold the moisture.
Next, gather your rose stems from a garden or a bouquet.
Prepare them by removing the leaves and the thorns on the lower third of the stem.
And now, the ultimate trick! Drill holes in some potatoes and stick a stem in each one.
The potatoes serve as both food and a water supply to the cuttings as they grow. Place each potato in the prepared row with about 6 inches between each one.
Then cover them in fresh soil until only a couple of inches are visible. Press the earth down firmly around it.
In just weeks you’ll have beautiful, healthy roses!
