I have a problem...

My new neighbor is clearing her yard of all landscaping to start fresh next spring. There is a rose bush that is over 60 years old and I would like to have a shoot. There are hundreds of them. She is removing the bush next week and we are expected to have snow so I know I can not transplant it into the ground right now. It would not survive.

I have a heated basement but there is very little light. Can I take a shoot, place it in a 5 gallon bucket, and keep it in there until spring of next year?

I'm sure there is other maintanence that needs to be done with it and I am willing to do it. I just need to know what to do since I have to take the shoot now and can't plant it until spring.

Please help.
