Have any of you any experience of aerial layering roses?
I know it is not considered necessary, as roses grown easily from cuttings, but it is not right time of year to take a cutting, and I want to replace a bare root rose planted last Autumn, which failed to survive the (admittedly very mild) Winter. (All those bought from garden centre survived: one variety I did not find so bought for £18 on eBay. The second time I have found rose from eBay failed to survive!)
I had anticipated filling the gap by purchasing a pot grown replacement, but having so far failed to locate one, now considering the aerial layering option.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
