Re: How common is this?

Thanks for your comments Dane. It's hard to believe that almost 20 years have passed since I discovered this rose. I think its important for folks breeding roses for cold climates, not to be too quick to dispose of seedlings. Let mother nature point the way. Geo. Van OP-01 stands about 10 inches wit...

Re: How common is this?

Hi Rob,
Here are some seedlings from Geo.van-op-01 crosses. This seedling is fertile both ways.

Standard Roses

Hi everyone,
One of the things I envy of rosarians that live in warmer climes is their ability to grow rose standards.
What would have to be done/created to standard material that can tolerate -35 to 40 deg. Celsius?

Re: So what's your magic number for days to harvest?

Hi everyone, thought this is too good to keep to myself. I've written quite a bit on storing seeds in the freezer. This is 13 years since I put 2006 seeds in the freezer. Took "Royal Edward x Love" seeds out and stratified them. Of 132 seeds, 35 seeds have germinated one month into the three month p...

Hi Moongoose 72

Welcome, you will find here some very knowledgeable, kind and helpful folks here.
You gave no reference as to what zone you live in and what are your breeding objects.

I don't see "Twinkling Lights" listed on HMF. Can you tell us more about this rose?

Re: Can any give suggestions on these roses for breeding?

Hi Josh, I looked at your list, many of of the roses you chose I've tired from time to time. In my zone 3 climate. Tender roses are essentially expensive annuals. I'm lucky to get them survive 3 winters. Maybe it's something I have to learn to master yet. George Vancouver would offer a lot of winter...

Re: I'm new here, so I'd like to say hi!

Hi Josh, Greetings from Manitoba, in Canada. I am where you are 20 years ago. You didn't say anything about the geography of the area you are working in. What is the USDA climate zone? What kind of soil you are working with? What is the rainfall amounts, and in what season? and finally, do you plan ...

Re: Why some crosses fail

Hi Karl,
We know and understand the effect of temperature,and soil on the growth and reproductive life of plants.
What role does altitude and latitude play in their flourishing?

Re: Why some crosses fail

Hi Karl, This quite an article. It is going to take me some time to digest it. Off hand, I can think of one rose that fits this bill. Therese Bugnet does not get very large in my garden. The blooms are sparse, and it seldom sets hips with applied pollen or set OP seeds. From what I have read on the ...

Re: rugosa x glauca seedling

HI guys,
Joe, this cross rugosa x glauca is the reverse of the cross "Carmenetta" made by Isabella Preston. I've put Carmenetta
pollen on Canadian shrub roses and got fertile F2 seedlings. Is your hybrid seedling fertile?

Like you said some Spins do throw out a few blooms in the fall. To hold out for a yellow rose that repeats in zone 2 might not in the bes...

The first person to develop a semi-hardy, disease resistant, yellow rose having good repeat bloom for a Zone 2 climate is ...

Hi Karl, Can you please explain in layman's terms how and why Warren Millington can get such great results using Canadian breed roses like Therese Bugnet,(as posted on FB). TB doesn't thrive, and hardly flowers or set hips for me here in the Manitoba. For a long time, I thought TB was sterile. Until...

Re: Help.. my babies are turning yellow!!!

Duan, I don't how long you have had your roses in the bigger pots. I started out using soil from my garden as a medium for roses in pots. I noticed over time that the potted roses became lethargic. Their flower production went down, and they succumbed after a few years. My farm agent told me I was a...

Re: Help.. my babies are turning yellow!!!

I agree with Joe's. The groundwater in my area in high in calcium. I never water with tap water,
I bring in snow in a garbage can, melt and filter it and use it on all of my indoor plants and rose seedlings.
In summer I have plastic totes under the downspouts to harvest rainwater.

Re: Morden Series for health

Hi Rob, Instead of using Morden roses, how about trying one of the Explorer roses? I find they are more disease resistant than the Mordens. I still sometimes use Morden Blush if I acquire some species rose pollen. MB is very fertile and the seeds germinate easily. The best all-around Explorer rose f...
