Reading List

I'm in a lull for tasks right now so I'd thought I'd do some winter reading.

Re: Visions of Sugar Plums

Don, How did you guess my initial strategy? Seriously, though. Crossing everything allowed me to see how plants were behaving on a twice daily basis. I learned a little bit about how the pollen and stigma responded in a few different varieties. Also, that I had to be really quick with some of the sp...

Visions of Sugar Plums

Warm season's greetings. A beginner's update on record keeping, etc. Any advice on methods appreciated! I ended my intentional crosses at about 280 with a hip and seeds added here and there for a total of 800+ seeds. I labeled each cross on the stem of the hip with a label maker. Data entry was done...

Favorite Miniatures

Hi Everyone,
Do you have some favorite miniatures you like to use in your hybridization program? Especially tetraploids and diploids?

First Fervor Greetings

Hi RHA forum! I don't know what happened to me. One day I was a work from home landscape architect, with small kids and then bam a little article on a vogue rose and a couple of YouTube videos later and I now have 280 crosses, a husband interested in micropropagation, and two kids whining about walk...
