How do I start a rose bush?

I would love to plant rose bush's in my yard but have no idea how to get started.

Cut a stalk from an existing bush and place into a vase with fresh water for three days. Change the water twice a day. On the fourth day, plant stalk on black soil, preferably in springtime and water once a day until it begins to grow.

IF you want to start a rose bush you have two options. Use a cutting from an old bush by placing a cut piece in root starter, then planting it, or by an already growing bush. Take care of it but watering, but not saturating the roots. Feed it regularly.

Inexpensive rose bushes can be purchased at any garden center; it's best to plant a rose bush in the late spring. Find a spot in your yard that in in the sun for most of the day and dig a hole 12-18 inches deep.

Start a rose bush by diggin a large hole and them plant the bush to the same level as it was growing before you got it... Only plant in the cooler parts of the season and water well.
