Re: HUMAN AND ANIMAL HEALTH Some Hematological and Non-Specific Immune Responses of Rosehip (Rosa canina) - Fed Russian

I've been on a rosehip tea kick this season. Ive purchased the Alvita brand, they use Rosa Canina and it tastes great. I think it has really been a health benefit this flu season. The tea has really renewed my interest in hybridizing fruiting edible roses. I'm just wondering if there is any reading ...

Re: So I don't think I'll be using Coir again

Thanks Tom, I promise I won't take it too hard. I think with gardening I tend to be a bit too lazy, and I'm always seeing what I can get away without doing, and this time I just ended up using a mix I had on hand instead of further investigating if it was indeed a good Idea. Peter I had no idea ther...

So I don't think I'll be using Coir again

So this season I got the bright Idea to use coconut fiber, a.k.a coir, for my rose seedlings. Instead of testing it out with a few, I planted all my seedlings in this mix and I used the seed trays that have the individual cells packs. I know I was kind optimistic with my germinating ratio which hasn...

Re: Dr. Felicitas Svejda: Scientist and Rosarian

I don't know if anyone is interested or not, but I believe her rose Quadra is available at http://www.raintreenursery.com/Quadra_C ... iters.html For $9.50, I think I'd like to make a trip up there and get one myself :)

Re: Germinations from 2015 crosses

Thanks jturner, I haven't waited to germinate seedlings before I remove them from the fridge, I thought the transition would be more difficult but since it isn't a problem for you then I suppose I shouldn't be so concerned. The seedling I just lost was might have just died because I didn't catch it ...

Re: Germinations from 2015 crosses

Thanks jbergeson, I do have grow lights I just hadn't set them up because I only had a few seedlings germinate earlier than usual so I put them in the windowsill for the first few days....oops. I have one more question regarding the soil, can one use peat moss or coconut fiber? hopefully I'm not hij...

Re: Germinations from 2015 crosses

I'm just wondering what you do with the seedlings that germinate in the refrigerator? I keep mine in damp perlite, but when I transplant them I lose them. I've been planting them in damp seedling mix placing a small ziplock bag over them for the first few days so not to shock them and I put them in ...
