Artificial Flowers and Starting Bushes
Cleaning Artificial Flowers Without Water
To clean artificial flowers, place them in a paper bag with a handful of salt and shake well. This will remove a lot of the dust. Shake them off well. If they need reshaping and are fabric or paper, warm up a teaspoon by dipping it into a pan of hot water, dry it off and press each petal on the bowl of the spoon.

Rooting Outdoor Bushes or Shrubs
Pull the branches down away from the bush so they will lay on the ground. Do not cut but scrape away the bark where it touches the ground. (You can put rooting compound powder on the scraped part if you want to but most will root without it.)
Weight the branch down with a rock and cover the scraped portion with soil. In the spring it will have roots and you can cut the branch and give the plant to a neighbor or plant somewhere else in the yard.

Does this apply to rosebushes and how much of the branch do you put on the ground. This is very intersting to me!
