Is this a sport of Woburn Abbey?

How do I treat it?  I'd like to try and strike it.

How do I treat it? Do I try and take a cutting from it?

I would suggest you go to the thread "this was unexpected" and read my article on rose sports on page 1.

Barbara, it is just soo irresistable!
We have got to try and see.
No body seems to know for definite - at least not the bunches like us.
What have we got to lose?
Go for it!

If it works YEAAHH!!.

I think I'll at least try. I lost a sport of Glendore - a lovely salmony colour sport, because I didn't do anything and didn't mark it. I've got 16 seeding roses going too. I wonder what they'll turn out to be. It's interesting to be a gardener.

I saw this yesterday and I've been pondering... I think my Woburn Abbey did this a year or two ago. And I missed my chance.... Go for it! Very Happy

Hi Barbara,

If you haven't taken the cuttings yet, take as much of the 'sport' coloured stem as possible, you should leave a bud or two to see if it is stable and repeats this colour. do you have any success in striking cuttings ? do it your way if so. There is a method which works well, 'the burrito method' see link below,

The other option is to bud it to a "host" plant, again to see if it will bloom true to type. Hope some of this helps Barbara.

Hi, I'm aware of this method and have successfully used it. I've also had considerable success striking them in the open ground in my protected vegetable garden. I'll see if I can get enough material off the rose to try both methods. I noticed that it was recommended to use rooting hormone with the wrap method. I didn't when I tried it - do you think it would make a difference?

As the person that wrote that Barbara is a friend has changed it slightly to no hormone. The option is try some with, some without. On another forum a lady has had great success with one more option, which is she roles the paper out with a "Rolling Pin", some of the members here might not know what we are talking about, but we do Barbara. There is also some merit with the use of "proper" honey from the hive, not shop bought. The other thing I forgot was Kim recommends a Temp of 14c if possible for the Burrito method.

That's interesting but I wonder why they didn't put up photos. I'll let you know how I go. I haven't touched it yet because we have a sort of open day tomorrow and we're a bit busy but I'll get onto it next week. The flowers are just about blown.
