The various propagation methods are given here.

Cutting- This is one of the oldest methods of rose plant propagation. Many hobbyists use this method to increase the yield of their garden roses. This method is also used commercially due to its simplicity. Always prefer to use a youthful plant for the purpose of cutting. Cut 3 or 4 stems to play safe and make sure that the stems you cut, contains some leaves and buds. Cut the stems at an angle of 45 degrees form top and bottom and immediately dip it in water. After that, you can insert the stems in a fertile pot.

Budding- This method of rose plant propagation is used to produce various blends of shades and even to produce multicolored roses. You can choose a wild rose plant and remove its buds. In the place of original buds, tape the bud of a plant whose shade you want, with the wild rose plant. In case you want to produce a multicolored rose, use different buds from different shades rose plants and tape them all individually on a single wild rose. The resultant will be a multicolored rose, depicting the colors of all the buds used initially.

Air layering- This is a comparatively newer method of rose plant propagation. You need to wound a stem while it is on the stock plant. Once wounded you need to aid the wounded part on the stem and then cover it. Soon afterwards, roots start coming out from the wounded region and then you can remove the stem out from the stock plant to let it grow as an independent rose plant.
