How do you start cuttings from rose bushes?
At pruning time, or in early summer if you are in a frost-prone area, select cuttings of about pencil thickness with about five sets of leaves. Cut them off just below a pair of leaves, remove all the leaves except the top pair. If you can't plant them straight away, put them into water. Plant them into soil, which preferably has some sand added to it, to about half their length. Take more cuttings than you will need, as the results from cuttings is variable. Not all of the plants will be worth keeping. Keep plants slightly damp, and plant out when strongly growing. This may be up to a year later.

Do you fertilize barberry bushes?
No, barberry bushes (Berberis spp) generally do not need to be fertilized. Specifically, barberry bushes are tolerant of a variety of soils. They can handle just about any soil type as long as the drainage is good. Attention to soil moisture and to pruning schedules may matter more than a regular fertilizing schedule that may not be necessary.
