Doug.  Is there any difference in health and longevity between the two types of roses?
Also, would you tell me the USA sites please.  Would love to take a peek! Smile

From very limited experience I would say it doesn't appear to make a difference. I have two bushes of Tineke one budded and one grown from a cutting both are in the vicinity of twenty years old and both are still extremely healthy and still produce abundant good sized shapely blooms. As far as the nurseries that use cuttings to produce their roses are concerned I haven't been able to find them again on the internet.

I have borrowed a book from the library on roses (of course!) and in the section on growing roses in pots, it says roses grown on their own roots do better than grafted ones due to their root system.

Sue it depends on the variety of rose IMO. Can you tell us the name of the book please.

The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Roses.  Charles and Brigid Quest-Ritson.   Beautiful book!  Well worth a look!  Shall renew it!!

There are some varieties (eg. some Damasks / old species types / etc) that will go absolutely feral in the garden with suckers if you have them on their own roots. Naturally they are the really thorny/prickly ones... L.O.L.

Haha Wendy, I want to get some of those ferals for my no-mans-land bank. I think Charles de Mills might do the trick!
