Re: Early freeze in Colorado! Save my hips!

On the callusing idea, I'm experimenting right now with a method to start cuttings using honey which I saw on Facebook. It calls for 1/2 teaspoon of honey mixed with the water and I've learned honey is a natural antibacterial/antifungal. May be useful in this application as well?

Re: RHA Zoom meeting?

Maybe a zoom business meeting and set up some workshops as well for less-experienced members?

Fertilizing mother plants

Can't seem to find this topic addressed clearly, but wondering what is your experience with fertilization of mother plants. From somewhere I have in mind that too much can cause dropped hips, but can't locate a reference? Also any difference between impact of granular vs foliar on hips? Thanks

Re: Agnes

While I never see powdery mildew on the rest of my roses, Agnes is always showing infection...I do have her in a corner without much sun, so that probably doesn't help.

Re: In search of disease resistant yellows

Has anyone had experience with Lord Mountbatten? Saw recently in a no-spray rose garden in London and was looking much better than all other varieties.
