Turn one rose into an entire rose bush in no time at all!
A nice bunch of flowers on the kitchen table can lighten up any cloudy day, don’t you agree? Unfortunately, flowers are pretty expensive, especially when you consider you’ll have to throw them in the bin after a couple of days already.
But with this trick we’ve got for you today, you can grow your own beautiful bunch of roses!
Everybody loves flowers
Flowers are beautiful and they provide your home with a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Plus, they smell amazing! Did you know that flowers can even be good for your health? Buy yourself an indoor hydrangea and say goodbye to dry eyes, headaches and sensitive skin. All all because of a plant! Buying plants can be pretty pricey, though, so growing them yourself in your garden might be a good alternative. It doesn’t just look pretty, it’s also good for your mental health! Research actually shows that gardening can improve your mental health. That’s as good a reason as any to start gardening, isn’t it?
Not all of us have enough of a green thumb to maintain an entire flower garden, though. Luckily, we’ve got an amazing tip for you that will make sure you can have your own roses before you know it! No need for a green thumb at all and you’ll never be without a bunch of flowers again. Sounds perfect, right? Everybody loves a good bunch of roses and this trick will make sure you can have a garden full of them. All you need is one rose, a potato, a plastic bottle, potting soil and a pot.
A rose and a potato? Yes, you read that right! This trick is going to sound really strange, but it does work. Quickly go to the next page to read the instructions and watch the video!
This is how you do it:
Pick a rose you like, remove all of the leaves and diagonally cut off the head of the rose (approximately 3 centimeters from the flower). If the flower is still pretty, you can put it in a tiny vase; it will look really cute!
Take the potato and drill in a hole the width of the stalk; make sure the stalk doesn’t wobble within the hole. Cover the bottom of the pot with 5 centimeters of potting soil, and place the potato on top. Fill the rest of the pot with potting soil. Cut off the bottom of your plastic bottle and carefully place it over the stalk sticking out of the soil. Occasionally water the rose (around the bottle) and watch how your roses grow like never before!
