Using gallica suckers for new plants...

September 28, 2019

So I know most people just want to remove suckers...but I have started growing gallicas last spring in my zone 7 city garden but I have an endless...like truly endless amount of space in my zone 5 country garden where I would love to add as many gallicas and other roses as I can. So once my gallicas hopefully begin suckering, how do I turn the suckers into new plants? I already understand how to and have successfully rooted cuttings of roses but I assume suckers are different than a stem tip cutting because as I understand it I can dig them up but does that mean they already have roots or something??? How far or long does the underground portion of the sucker need to be to grow a new rose plant from it???
