Hello all, Yesterday I was mowing the lawn around the house on our property that my great grandfather built. I wasnt paying attention and mowed partially over one of my great grandmother's rose bushes! I did not cut the whole thing off, just 4 sprigs about 3ft long. They are healthy and I went today and purchased some rooting hormone and plan on trying to save the sprigs. But I have two questions... 1) Should I try to root just the 3-3ft sprigs or cut them into several smaller cuttings and get more? 2) I am concerned about the exsisting rose bush, where the mower blades hit are not clean cuts and I am worried about decease and/or drying out of all the stems... should I try and "prune" the stubs back to a clean edge and spray with pruning seal? OR Leave it alone and let it heal? Any expertise in this area would very helpful!
