Re: New "organic" systemic insecticide and exciting ideas

Kim, if this really is as effective as it sounds, it could be an amazing product. I'm keeping an eye on this one. Thank you so much for bringing it to our attention. -Brian

Re: Source for Condoleeza

Hi TimHAll. For what it's worth, the ARS local chapters in California have fundraising sales, usually in the autumn, where you can get your mitts on all kinds of harder-to-find roses. I've had a great time snooping around their websites, Santa Clarita and San Diego's to name a couple. Hi Kim! You al...

Re: A beginner's question

Hi Kim. Micaela at Heirloom Roses says the version of Cl Cecile Brunner that they carry repeats in flushes throughout the season. Sounds like your good deed will spread to the rest of us! Thank you.

Re: A beginner's question

Hi Kim! Burling sent me a kind response immediately. She said she didn't know if her Cl Cecile Brunner is the same clone you shared from Huntington. She reports that it has a spring bloom, with scattered bloom after. Hmm. Maybe I need to drop a line to Rogue Valley Roses. I hope they have time to an...

Re: A beginner's question

Thanks, Kim! This is wonderful news. Burling Leong just sent me her rose list (amazing!....and the list of minis is too!) and I notice it includes Cl. Cecile Brunner. She was a associate of the late Ralph Moore at Sequoia, so I am in hope that the clone she offers is derived from your work at the Hu...

Re: A beginner's question

Kim, thank you for your informative response...and the encouragement! Extremely interesting. Le Vesuve is definitely in my plans now. Stefan, the possibility of some climbing sports being indistinguishable from the bush forms is also an interesting idea. I'm thinking of some of the comments about La...

A beginner's question

Hi all. I was looking at Cl. Le Vesuve on Helpmefind. What a beauty! Rogue Valley has it and the non-climbing original. When used in hybridizing, does the climbing sport characteristic affect the offspring raised from a cross using it? In other words, would it make a difference if I used the origina...

Re: Seedling from 2 years ago

It is a subtle beauty. Is it scented? Apple scented like QE? Maybe it will be stronger-stemmed in its second season.

Re: A sport or just quirky news...

Thanks, Kim, for your encouraging words. We really are extremely fortunate to be able to move there. And as for the monsters...bring 'em on! I have a list a mile long of roses I have dreamed of growing there. Thanks also for your practical advice about how to wrangle the photos. I'll get right on it...

A sport or just quirky news...

Hi all. I'm a beginner, at the stage where I am raising seedlings from the random hips gathered when I prune my elderly aunt and mother's roses each winter when I visit them in San Diego. This is in practice for when I can raise my own crosses. When my husband an I retire next year, we hope to reloc...

Re: Yellowing of rose leaves.

Hi Julie. I'm no expert, but if you have similar conditions to the ones I struggled with, maybe I can offer a couple of suggestions. As a groundskeeper in a college setting in [like you] zone 9 in the Los Angeles area, I looked after a planting of acid-loving plants. They were planted in a courtyard...

Thanks, David and Peter. I will keep a gimlet eye on them for now and will be much more careful with humidity on the next batch.

A beginner's question

I have been enjoying my second season of open pollinated seedlings, trying to get the hang of things before I attempt a cross. There are thirty-six new roses so far, very exciting. The kind advice of all of you has been very helpful. Something puzzles me. Two of the seedlings appear to have large he...

Re: Alternate source for repeat bloom

Thank you for your generous entry, David. It is amazingly informative. I'll need to go over it a few times, but I am already excited about the breeding possibilities you describe.
