Chewing On It

I've been more than a little frustrated that my species crosses were taking so long to germinate. After finding propagation protocols via the Native Plant Network, I think I'm going to be a little more aggressive with my seed coats. This is a very interesting (to me) link on native plant propagation...

Re: Koppen Geiger Climate

Hi David, I'm in Climate Csb, but since I have most of the native roses that fit that climate from Washington, I was looking to northern Spain and northern Portugal as a guide. And because Csb is so small outside of the pacific northwest I might need to branch in Csa to include Coastal Mediterranean...

Koppen Geiger Climate

This is a bit tangential... A while ago, I used the Koppen Geiger map as a starting point to help write a report on the feasibility of green roofs in various states. Lately, I've been using the map in rosebreeding to help me decide which rose species I might purchase that should work well in my clim...

Re: 2020 Seed Exchange

Update that I just have to walk up to the USPS counter and mail these in person. Batch went out fine, this time.

I'll be ready to mail more out in a few weeks. I have plenty. Keep the requests coming in the PM with your address!

Re: 2020 Seed Exchange

Well the first package was mailed without a hitch because I went up to the counter. The others were not because I applied postage stamps at the same rate and I guess they got flagged due to "heightened security concerns" because of stamps? If I have a chance, I'll try to go up to the counter on Thur...

Re: 2020 Seed Exchange

Duane,
I give the species (and their crosses) 2 years before I toss them. The glaucas definitely take 2 years. I have no anecdotal information on the spinos.

OP seeds for the following plants: R. foliolosa R. glauca R. spinosissima R. nutkana R. woodsii and 'Bonica' 'Hansa' 'The...

Re: This is news to me

It's interesting because on the design end, we surely don't add (TM) to any of the plant names specified on contractual documents. We would rather specify both botanical and common names as much as possible in order to get the intended plant. The TM is irrelevant and wasted space. So does the privat...

Would officers and members be interested in an online RHA zoom meeting?

It seems like a good year for it.

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

It’s funny Don mentioned educational tool because I did read it as that and as a result will probably be signing up for an online patent class. Just how many embodiments can you have? Really though, how does one argue a patent pending? Is there a public comment period? Also, is there a precedent for...

Soil Mix for Seedlings

Hi Everyone, I'm getting a late start to my seed planting this year (my 3rd year!), but I'm wondering if I should change up my seed soil mix this time. My process is as follows: Collect seeds and clean, plant in 3 inch pots in groups of 5. (I skip the refrigerator step because 1. kids would attack t...

Re: I think I'm killing my seeds

Is there a way that you can simplify your processes? I believe in simplicity. Perhaps as an experiment take 50% (or another number that makes sense to you) and cold stratify them already planted in an unheated nursery when the outdoor temperatures warm to “refrigerator-ish”. I know I’m only running ...

Do you have photos of your ugly culled plants? I've read the booklets cover to cover, but I could use some visuals here. I'm preparing to do my first culling of my second year plants that are in pots this spring (once winter has done some of the work for me). I already have some amorphous goals, but...
