One of the problems to grafting as I see it, is to get your hands on the appropriate rootstock. I have tried all the rose nurseries here in Perth and none are willing to sell even 1 fortuniana plant, so there you go.

I secured two plants of fortuniana from Mistydownes last year as they had it in their catalogue as a bare rooted plant.

Interesting point I found out recently, that is, the mam who is employed by Swiss Roses to do a lot of their grafting here in Perth, lives in Quinns Rock, the suburb next to me. Now he would be a good bloke to get hold of to glean some knowledge. Hopefully one day our paths will cross and he will be willing to give some advice.

In NSW the AQ runs budding classes for small groups and they are proving to be both popular and successful. For years in NSW budding demonstrations were held for large groups and apart from making those in attendance aware of the process it didn't teach them to bud. At the last class she budded straight onto a sticks of multiflora  then placed them into pots of river sand to grow. This method was originally trialled in NSW by Max Ryan and although the strike rate is down on budding onto a stick that is already growing it does work. I am not sure this method would work using fortuniana as it doesn't strike as easily as multiflora.

Always wondered about something.

There are a couple of teas and other roses that strike quite easily up our way so could they be used for grafting. The advantage is if the bud fails to take you could let the rootstock grow and you still had a decent plant.

I would suggest you aquire a couple of sticks of multiflora put them in a pot of wet river sand and once they have taken root transplant them in an area where they have room to spread and you will have an abundant supply of budwood.

when we did the budding today, we only used the bottom eight inches of the plant, because after three weeks you cut  just above the top graft and throw that bit away.. So if there is a way to utilize the top half of the fortuniana, I have no idea......maybe they regrow the branches for new stock......
