Re: First germination of the winter

That sounds like a great cross Rob. 'Ramblin Red' does well at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden.
Looking forward to your report on the outcome.

Great crosses Andre. I really like the 'Prairie Youth' x 'Hazeldean'.

Re: Spring Observations

Joe, Sorry to hear of your bad luck with the spray. Maybe the folks at the local golf course can recommend something. Twenty years ago, I could spray Roundup at the base of my shrubs around the time the grass was 3 inches high and before the leaves emerged. It worked well by killing the grass withou...

Dr. Parminderjit Sandhu, the Canadian scientist in charge of rose breeding at Vineland Research and Innovation Centre, was scheduled to present the lecture. She has resigned from Vineland effective February 28th, 2018 due to health reasons.

World Federation Rose Societies conference - Copenhagen

I am interested in learning if your crosses with R. acicularis eventually are subject to rust? Or is rust even a problem where you are?
