I love getting roses from my husband! However, while the thought is sweet. I can’t help but to think about how much of a waste it is to have to throw away your bouquet of wilted roses just a week or so after receiving them. I always wished that there was a way to prolong the life of those flowers so I could enjoy them longer. Then about two years ago I discovered that you can take your bouquet of dozen roses and turn them into a dozen rose bushes.
Did you know you could propagate roses? What a frugal way to have a beautiful garden! (FYI if a plant is patented or trademarked you can't legally reproduce them via cuttings.) DIY Saturday @ A Cultivated Nest
