    If your neighbor is willing, propogating is much easier and faster.
    All he needs to do is lay a new cane on the ground (still attached to the plant) bury part of the stem several inches deep, holding it down with a brick or such, and let it root. Cut off from the parent plant, and voila! a rose plant is born.
