Re: First known yellow rose

What's your goal? Are you looking for potential breeders? Are you looking to begin a botanical collection? An historic garden? What would your breeding goals be? They all have their values, but whether the would be worth YOUR money and time depends upon what you hope to gain from them.

Re: Rose Seed Germination

You're welcome, Edgar. Fortunately, there are a number here who do raise their seedlings indoors, so I shall allow them to share their methods with you. Welcome and good luck!

Re: Rose Seed Germination

Before attempting to tip you how to improve it, what do you do to germinate rose seeds now? And, where are you? What climate and conditions do you have to deal with to germinate them? Do you germinate them indoors or outdoors? I can't help you with indoor suggestions as I have never germinated them ...

You're welcome, David. I'm sorry you may be losing one of your nurseries. So, what yellows they are selling, interest you?

Re: First known yellow rose

If you are considering when the first yellow species was brought into European gardens, R. hemisphaerica, per HMF was known before 1516; and discovered by Charles de L'Écluse (Netherlands, 1601); and introduced in United Kingdom by Nicholas Leat / Lete in before 1629 as 'Double Yellow. Persian Yello...

Re: Ploidy of Isabella Skinner (Victorian Memory).

Isabella Skinner set few hips in my Newhall garden back in the early to mid nineties and they had few seeds which never germinated. Nothing I ever put on her took, nor did her pollen work on anything I tried it on. Not that it means anything as seed set is highly location and climate dependent. Iceb...

Re: 'Banshee' for hybridizing...

Wow, Tom, that foliage is GLORIOUS! I'm glad Banshee is doing well for you, Joe. Dennis Favello graciously shared that with Arkansana Woodrow (which I shared then lost, again) and Rose d'Orsay (the apparent correct one showing species influence, not the probable European OGR pictured on HMF). My oth...

Re: Fertilizing mother plants

Generally, plants which "think" they are in danger of dying, tend to set MUCH more fruit than those which are well fed with plenty of resources. Joe Winchell used to "root prune" by running a shovel through the root zone around his seed plants to make them 'think' they were going to die to force the...

Re: How do you care for seedlings?

If you want to paint them at all. It depends upon the type of wood you have available. I use the standard fir fencing boards available here. Fir and cedar replaced redwood, which would be ideal but not sustainable nor affordable. So far, I've had fir boards last for this use five years before I toss...

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Species? No sir. Rugosa rusts. Minutifolia and Stellata mirifica don't rust. They go dormant in dry and don't need to shut down for cold, or the dry shuts them down. Nutkana, Woodsii, Carolina, Virginiana and all the others I've messed with, rust. Oh, Serafinii, Californica and Spithamea haven't rus...

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Marvelous! Congratulations! The only thing I really regret the Basye stuff doing is how likely they are to rust. But, that's an American species trait. Nature uses it to tell them when to shut down for the winter. I don't think we're going to be able to break that instruction.

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Congratulations! CG/Legacy/Basye's Thornless, et. al, characteristically produces weak seedlings when used for seed. To successfully raise something from its seed that appears not to be a self is an accomplishment!

Re: 'Cal Poly' X (rugosa x davidii)

I actually find the pattern quite interesting. But, I've also always been a sucker for stripes, stippled and Hulthemia blotches, too, until blotches became "common". But I still love heavily stippled, veined and striped!
