Many people choose to graft their roses to help them grow better and to bloom better. Grafting is not necessarily difficult, but it does require some skill and some forethought before making the attempt. There are many reasons to graft roses, and you can find that it is possible to create a more successful and uniform garden when you practice rose grafting.
Rose grafting is much like any other type of plant grafting. It is basically taking one part of a plant (usually a piece of the stem) and attaching it surgically to the root or stem with roots of another plant. The top portion of the graft, the stem, is known as the scion. It is called either a bud wood or a bud stick.
