Re: Body Bag Roses

What Peter said: they will likely all have RMV, and the odds of them being correctly identified cultivars is quite low. The former issue isn't nearly as much of a problem to someone considering them as breeding material, but the latter problem certainly is.

Re: Moore's C09/Peach Crest

[quote="roseseek"]Often, the greater the "cresting", the more awkward, climbing and spotted the growth. That's just the way it has worked with that line due to how incestuous it is. Getting any expression of cresting to remain while out crossing in hopes of improving the health and architecture of t...

Re: At my wit's end looking for these rare species! Please h

R. sericea pteracantha is a ***** to propagate by any means than matching it to the right rootstock and budding it. Some brave individuals (glances in Burling's direction) have managed to get cuttings to root on occasion, after much hoop-jumping and assorted spells, but in general it is extremely di...

Re: Scarifying Seeds

Steve, In over fifteen years of working with this genus I have never found a need to go to extraordinary lengths to get seeds to germinate. If you stratify seed properly (a minimum of ten weeks of cold, moist storage after removal from the hips and cleaning ) then the two halves of the achenes separ...

Re: Best greenhouse temp for hip production?

You are going to face a real challenge keeping the likes of 'Mister Lincoln' free of mildew in the confines of a greenhouse, especially during the dark days of winter. Good luck!

Re: Seed parent more important than pollen parent?

I've had this discussion with Ralph and several others. I believe there is cytoplasmic DNA that is inherited only from the seed bearer that can often (always?) influence the outcome.

[quote=Kim] there were MANY opportunities, over MANY decades for any number of viruses to be spread to many of these things because of his continual budding of seedlings around the nursery.

Re: Why is 0-47-19 always the seed parent

It is used as the seed-bearer simply because it is one of those rare creatures that takes pollen from almost anything and makes vast numbers of easily-germinated seeds. Finding such a willing and capable seed-bearer is often difficult, so people tend to use them extensively as females. It is quite f...

Any news on the state of HMF? My login is still not functional, and it appears all of the photos I have uploaded over the years are gone/missing. I hope the information is recoverable!

Re: Protect rose hips in Sept and Oct

Years ago I tried the foil covers and got one of two results: the hips rotted, or they cooked. I stopped covering hips over a decade ago and see no reason to resume the process. But then, I don't have a problem with scavengers stealing my hips.

Re: Protect rose hips in Sept and Oct

Cathy,

Have you already seen evidence that birds and squirrels are taking your rose hips, or is your inquiry a preemptive one? Perhaps you won't actually have a problem.
