Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Pollen would be great. Thanks! I've been thinking about what Joe said about blooms lasting. This seedling is hard to judge, as it opens slowly. It is, of course, a bud for a while. It takes three or four days to open, although that is hard to tell sometimes because it stays fairly deeply cupped. Whe...

Re: R. gallica Splendens x Above and Beyond's first bloom

I have hips set using pollen from Chinook Sunrise. It has set hips also from pollen I placed on it. Not accepting all pollens, but not as particular as some. Setting nice fat hips. Time will tell if they make it to full ripeness, and also if seeds germinate. I will try extraction if they don't germi...

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Beautiful rose! I wonder what the pollen parent was to get that bloom.
I'm very curious to see what type of cold hardiness this seedling has. I want to try several cuttings to have a backup, but hips are forming on the branches, so it will have to wait.

Re: Experience with Great Maidens Blush?

Thank you for that information! I did crosses both directions with Maidens Blush. So far she is setting hips from some of the crosses, but I'll have to think about seedlings from her if I continue that direction. Fortunately I have hips set on a couple plants from her pollen, provided they don't dro...

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Thanks for the information guys! This year I didn't purchase any spins or hybrids from them. I used pollen from Williams Double yellow two seasons ago (at least I think it was Williams not Harrison's) because it still grows on homesteads by where we lived and I could get pollen. This year I got some...

Re: Experience with Great Maidens Blush?

So, find small Maidens Blush, will do.

What does irregularly hexaploid mean for breeding exactly, with tetraploid or triploids?

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Beautiful pictures!
We are starting over, so blank canvas, except for a patch of strawberries and raspberries just starting to ripen. Fun years ahead, hopefully. I hope we get some established as you have.

Re: pollen from seedling

It is dried, getting ready to freeze. I just wiped a bit on some black plastic. The pocket microscope has a small light on it. I just practiced moving my cell phone around until it lined up.

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Thank you, each of you, for your thoughts. Of course, like many of you, I would be glad if a rose I bred was considered by others to be worthy of placing down their hard earned money on it. Taste being as tastes are, some would say yes and others no. But that is not why I am breeding roses. My wife ...

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Henry, that is a beautiful rose. Is that the one I remember reading about before that is exceptionally fragrant? Is it fertile either direction? Joe, you could be right about recessive for white , especially considering Henry's rose. This one starts as a very light blush, which we love. It becomes w...

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Thank you! I will update later. So far I have hips developing from Wasagaming, Great Maiden's Blush, Chinook Sunrise, Olivia Rose Austin: so accepted quite a variety, providing they don't abort late. Also need them to germinate, so we will see next spring.

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

For those who like them the leaves are very much a Rugosa. The blooms stay fairly deeply cupped and hold the loose button eye throughout their life. Downsides: the petals are soft, which gives them such a delicate appearance, but I fear will be an issue in rain. Also, this causes them to not last as...

pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

This is the seedling that was from Martin Frobisher. Pollen parent was either Therese Bugnet or Lilian Austin. Part of me is hoping it was a Lilian Austin cross, as I would have a fertile triploid. But the thought of zone 3 fully hardy bush with these blooms is certainly a great one. The fragrance i...

Re: Rose Seed Germination

I have sown seeds in individual pods in trays or planted in rows in a tray. This tray I keep somewhere cool like garage, unheated storage room, or in a window behind an insulated curtain. It must be a window without direct sun. I can then open the window a crack to keep it cooler than the room. (Not...

Re: pollen from seedling

two pics of pollen. Both had to be really downsized to load over cell as hotspot. I might try a larger picture when I get access to wifi.

pollen from seedling

first question: how are people taking pictures of pollen under their microscopes? I will try to attach the best of the pictures I did get. I'm not sure if they will be helpful. Here is the situation I'm trying to figure out: I have a seedling from Martin Frobisher that was a juvenile bloomer. The po...

I have been wanting to get Duchess de Montebello, so I need to move it to the top of my list. I have Great Maidens Blush. I will see what is available for the other two here in the U.S.

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

This is a subject I have wondered about a lot.Where we were growing roses we did not get below -20 F. On the map it is shown as a zone 5. But there was wind, which was colder. Also a factor I believe was chief in contribution, was how dry the cold air was. I would mound a foot of compost, straw, or ...
