New Breeder 1st Hybrid

Hi to everyone my name is Anthony and I am from Australia. This is my 2nd year of hybridising roses the 1st year I had a few germinate and bloom but they all died which I blame on doing my crosses too late and the seedlings being too young for the harsh Australian sun. This year I did my crosses much earlier with a lot more successful germinations. I have had my 1st bloom which I am very happy about it is a cross between Man of Steel and Scentimental and is highly scented

Hello Anthony,

Regarding growing new seedlings in the hot Australian sun, years ago I visited Cap Haitien in northern Haiti. At the Baptist farm I saw them growing big tall tomatoes in a small greenhouse that was covered with fiberglass screening. I don’t know if they used a water spray with it. Would that help in hot Australia?

I used Scentimental crossed with Brave Heart, dr S, introduced by John Clements of Heirloom Roses in 1998. It turned out to be a very vigorous and disease resistant tall red and white striped shrub rose that I registered as Raspberry Stripe. Scentimental is a good one for crossing.

Hi Anthony,
Congratulations on a beautiful seedling. Most of us had similar experiences when we first started hybridizing when seeds did not germinate as we had hoped. But you stuck with it and see the results. We too have used Scentimental and had some excellent results. Look forward to seeing more of your "babies" in the future.
John

JohnJel I did my crosses much earlier the 2nd year timing germination to occur in early winter as where I live gets no frosts and never drops below 4*C with the thought that they will have more of a chance to harden up a bit before the heat of summer comes
