Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

Thank you Margit. It's a shame that we can't share plant material across the border.

Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' met its sunset

David,

I had a few crosses take using CS pollen and OP hips set but maybe too late in the season. Health is very good here.

Re: Question about experience with Above and Beyond and Rambling Red

Congrats on your juvi bloom TB seedling! I hope you can dig it out. I'm wondering what chance Metis has, with TB as one parent, of producing reblooming seedlings. I have a number of seeds this year from Metis x Catherine Guelda. Metis is TB crossed with the non-remontant R. nitida, while Catherine ...

Re: Question about experience with Above and Beyond and Rambling Red

Ramblin Red produced a good percentage of repeat/juvenile bloomers for me. Most of the crosses with RR were using Never Alone. Disease resistance in F1 has been very good. There were a few F1 that didn't bloom the first season so I tossed those. One cross using RR and MMILC3, (Morning Magic x ILC1-7...

Re: Harvested hips - some interesting crosses for me

I did a mail order from a Green Promise Farms in Lebanon, CT back in July of 2017. It doesn’t appear they are carrying Thrive. Sorry.

Harvested hips - some interesting crosses for me

I have hips from a lot of crosses and wanted to share some of those that I think are more interesting matches.

Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

Thank you Terry! I'm hoping that this one will repeat next season but even if not it's still a nice rose. Miracle on the Hudson is a really nice rose with many fine qualities to pass on. Did you know that it's reported to be hardy in zone 3? Are there restrictions on roses coming into Canada from th...

Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

Thank you for the recommendation Joe! I'm looking forward to looking at pollen for the first time. I have a few breeder roses that I suspect might be triploids with minimal fertility and following your suggestions will be very helpful. It could also save me from wasting time on a rose that has no/li...

Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

Pretty cool, Rob! Have you looked at the pollen under a pocket microscope? This is the perfect situation where such a scope can be useful. I have a rugosa x Miracle on the Hudson seedling that has very uniform pollen grains which implies that it is a diploid and tells me that the pollen is fertile....

Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

I've been working with Nyveldt's White for a while now and NWMOTH is the best F1 so far. Germination was in the winter of 2017 and these are the first blooms but so far no repeat. We'll see if it does next season. I love the red color and it is very healthy. I'll use it next season as a parent and h...

Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' met its sunset

I purchased on to see if it will be useful as a breeder and for disease resistance. So far it's healthy and the jury is still out as to being useful as a breeder. So far it's not looking good. I haven't actually seen a flower in bloom since I'm trying it out as a seed parent and take off the petals....
