Having finally found a 'slip' or cutting of that prized hybrid T rose cultivar, you rush home to plant the cutting, but alas you've run out of Seradix no:1/2/3 powder... Don't fret run down to your local pet shop and buy a small 2kg bag of budgie seed....budgie seed?.....yes! budgie seed. Crush the budgie seed and use as would the seradix powder(Rooting powder)....It works!....TRY IT!
