SEED HARVESTING FOR 2017

Well its that time of the year again when hips start to ripen, all going well I should have seed germinating early March. The seed parent for these is Therese Bugnet.

Therese Bugnet crossed with the following

Ross Rambler 4
Archimedes
Knock out
Sutters Gold
Dr Huey
Ithaca X Atomik
Safrano
R.willmottiae X R.forrestiana
Westerland X [Charles Austin X (Mimas X R.virginiana)]
The Firebird
The Firebird X Apache

Some of the later pollinations have yet to ripen fully. For those wondering why I used Dr Huey, I think it will give some interesting colours and at the same time I think TB health will over ride Dr huey's problems.

Hi Warren!!!

That is wonderful!! I love Therese Bugnet because of its diverse background, hardiness, and fragrance. The red stems in winter are sure nice too. I'm excited for all the crosses you have with such diverse dads, especially Knock Out.

Thanks David
The reasons I used these pollinators for were certain traits which they may give their offspring.

Ross Rambler 4 - cold hardiness
Archimedes - short compact growth with very good flower production.
Knock Out - Disease resistance
Sutters Gold - perfume
Dr Huey - that deep red wine colour
Ithaca X Atomik - the pernetiana yellow/gold colour.
Safrano - Tea type roses with increased cold tolerance.
R.willmottiae X R.forrestiana - To add more species diversity into the breeding.
The Firebird - Red colours.
The Firebird X Apache - Vibrant red colours.

I hope this all makes sense, I set certain goals I want to achieve every breeding season.

Before I read David's comment, I was going to also mention Knock Out as a fun pollen parent for Therese. Its heavy blooming, compact habit, and strong disease resistance make it the perfect foil for the ultra-hardy Therese Bugnet.

I haven't had good luck using Therese as a parent. Maybe your warmer temps help with seed set.

And if Therese is a diploid and KO a triploid, maybe there will be some triploid progeny that are 2/3 KO and 1/3 TB. I think that's the perfect ratio.

Joe results on hip set can vary from year to year, it may be caused from a slight variation in the weather or longer daylight hours, Iam only speculating.

Looking good warren.
How many seeds are you expecting to harvest the year.
Do you extract the seeds by hand one hip at a time or do you use another method like the blender?
Do you divide and hold back a portion of each cross against a disaster?

Thanks Chuck;
Probably around 500 or less. I extract the seed by hand as some crosses will only give a few seeds and I don't want them damaged by the blender. Sometimes I hold back some seed if there is abundant numbers.
Cheers Warren
