    Not likely. Rose’s are rooted flowers, that means that they must have a root system before they’ll grow.

    Yes. I am doing one right now. Stick a y shaped cutting in the ground, and keep properly watered. Clip off leaves before planting.

    You can’t start a plant from a bud, but you can start one from a stem cutting. When you prune, save sections of the woody or semi woody stems about six or eight inches long. Cut the bottom end at an angle and, if you have some, dip that end in rooting hormone. Put the stem cutting bottom down in a jar of water three or four inches deep. Soon new roots will appear on the stem at and below the water line. Make sure you change the water every couple of days to prevent it from souring. Once the roots are established you can put the new plant in a potting mix to continue growing.
    Most roses these days are grown from stem cuttings or grafting rather than from seeds.
