    My gardening experience is somewhat limited.  However a running theme and great advice for beautiful Roses is to add magnesium to the soil.   My Grandfather, Father and my boss who I gardened for all did this.  Evidence was clear to see.  Rose bushes formed a high yield of flowers and had healthy foliage.  The growing conditions and climate are a challenge to gardeners here.  Best of luck in finding a more helpful answer and in growing healthy Roses!

      Propagate means breed new ones, not grow roses that already exist.

    Take a cutting of a soft, new branch that isn't flowering, in the spring or fall. Push the end into a small potato. Plant the cutting in a pot, covering the potato. Water it regularly. In a few months, you should see the rose start to sprout new leaves and grow. That's your new rose bush.
