Re: rose hips without inner hair?

Ralph Moore dabbled with that idea but nothing of note ever came of it. Week's Roses introduced a Rugosa called Sweet Hips through Gurney Seed and Henry Fields. It is noted for having extremely large, tasty hips. Basye's Legacy-Commander Gillette-Basye's Thornless (as they are all the same rose) has...

Re: How important is own root

"I am noticing a significantly higher portion of seedlings descended from certain grafted varieties are exceptionally weak in their growth, when compared to the own root varieties." Though there may be other factors involved, you may have answered your question there. I do sometimes use some weak ow...

Re: pirate bug behavior -mites - thrips

This was posted on Garden Web in a post about Chilli Thrips. The gist of the study is, these varieties of ornamental peppers possess the necessary structures on their foliage to provide "housing" for the listed predatory mites. These mites are commercially available. They are omnivorous, eating poll...

Re: New member

Yes, Bearnardin, welcome! Pierre can hopefully provide you with detailed instructions in French, to make it easier. Of course the rest of us welcome any questions you may have. Don't worry about any issues you may feel you have with your English. MANY people born and raised here with English as thei...

Re: Basye's "Probable Amphidiploid" now extinct?

Karl, unfortunately, unless someone like Joan Monteith still has it, that seedling is LONG gone. It was gone from that garden long before it was dismantled in 2007.

Re: Basye's "Probable Amphidiploid" now extinct?

Thanks David, but Burling never had it. I doubt Paul had it and I haven't had it in MANY years. I wish I had my repeat flowering self seedling of it, but like MANY others, it's long gone. Philip and I have been in contact about it.

Re: repeat bloom in Wasagaming???

You're welcome, Duane. Yes, climate makes all the difference. Dr. E.M.Mills flowered twice then threw a few odd flowers about a month ago.

Re: repeat bloom in Wasagaming???

Help Me Find-Roses shares the statement "Occasional repeat later in the season." so it seems repeat isn't that unusual. Climate could easily affect "repeat". We frequently receive odd repeat bloom here due to the climate. Banksiae lutescens is flowering for the third time since the initial spring fl...

Re: Odd little seedling

Hi Joe, we're back down into our "normal"temps now of low to mid seventies during daylight and the forties at night. The weather should still be good in spring, but at least if we will receive rains, earlier would get some of them while later likely won't. Now it's cooler, I need to send Jonathan a ...

Re: Questions about seedlings traits

Yes, the plant scents are also just as variable and for the same reasons. Both individual olfactory sensitivities as well as the evaporation or lack of expression of the oils and alcohols. There are times I didn't smell the peppery cedar scent to the new growth of Grandmother's Hat and others when i...

Re: Questions about seedlings traits

Yes, I've played with the Veilchenblau (and IXL) blue tones as well as Mr. Bluebird, Faurax and my seedling of it, Lauren. IXL is the deepest slatey-blue here and likes the climate. It's flowering for the fourth time so far this year!

Re: Questions about seedlings traits

My original Reine des Violettes was a badly virused plant from Viruses of Now and Forever. It was budded on Dr. Huey and even then, I had to heavily treat it with iron and Miracid to prevent the foliage from turning nearly yellow and the flowers so light lavender, they were nearly white. I did find ...

Re: Questions about seedlings traits

There is nothing behind Cotillion that should lead to scented foliage. Wouldn't you think it odd that if it had that characteristic, no mention of it has been made anywhere else? Nothing in any advertising and no mention anywhere in the comments nor reference section on HMF. I never noticed it havin...

Best? That's in the eye of the beholder, just as beauty is.

Re: Rose replant disease?

Those initial "runts" you write of, Plazbo, seem to me to be genetically weaker as they just don't generate sufficient root systems to grow stronger and healthier. The ones which do amazingly well DO generate tremendous root systems. The runts seldom develop into much and it is they which have produ...

Re: Rose replant disease?

Yes, I recycle my potting soil. Sometimes I mix it with fresh, sometimes not. It all depends upon how much I have, how much I need, what the condition of my back is and how lazy I am feeling at the moment. If I find gall in the pot, no, I don't reuse the soil. Otherwise, I don't worry about reusing ...
