Here in the US, it's called Rootone. Also, if you want the cutting to root, it has to have been cut at the bud union (joint). Then, what you do is get some rooting hormone (a powder), dip the wet stem into the powder to coat the stem completely from the bottom upward for several inches, and then put it into a prepared hole in moist soil (or growing medium), taking great care not to knock off the powder as you do so. CAREFULLY and gently push the soil back around the stem. Then wait. And wait. And wait.<br />
If you are lucky and the stellar/planetary alignments are right, etc., it will root.<br />
There's an organization here in the US called (I think) the "Texas Rose Rustlers." They go out to ghost towns, cemeteries, and old slave cabins looking for roses that have managed to survive in the Texas landscape for so many years. If the bush is healthy, they will take ONE cutting and try to root it. If they are lucky, it roots,and they plant it out. Once it blooms, they search old rose books/guides to determine its name and when it might have been brought to Texas. Some have been discovered dating to the 1850's. Such plants are worth saving, for they have proved their hardiness in the harsh, unforgiving Texas countryside.
