Re: Source for Dr. Huey rootstock

Thanks Roseseek for the response. The problem is that it is illegal to use multiflora in CT, which is where the plants will ultimately end up. I used the multiflora this past year and yes it is easy to root, easy to bud and from what I've seen does pretty well out here.

Source for Dr. Huey rootstock

Have been trying to find a source for Dr. Huey Rootstock. I know UC Davis has them but I don't need $100 worth of it, just about 20 cuttings is all I am looking for. Anyone know of a source? I'm in MA and there are lots of wild multiflora around but everything I have read about using that as a roots...

Re: Will hips ripen indoors?

The plants under grow lights in my basement is working. Temps are quite steady in the 60-65 F range. Grow lights are on for about 15 hours a day. Just harvested my Chrysler Imperial x Miracle on the Hudson hips a couple of days ago. Really large hips with many really small seeds. Other hips are show...

0% germination, what am I doing wrong

Stratified the seeds for 7 weeks and then planted in seedling mix, its been more than 4 weeks so far and there is no sign of any germination. Temperature in range of 65 - 70, soil is moist but not wet. Had planted some daylily seeds at the same time and those are doing just fine. So do I just need t...

Seedling from 2 years ago

This was one of my Iceberg x Queen Elizabeth seedlings. Unfortunately it has really weak stems and not too disease resistant.

Re: Current hips you are excited about?

Fragrant Cloud did very well for me here in MA this year. Super fragrant. It did get a mild case of mildew towards the end of summer but it was easily taken care of. I really wanted to do a Queen Elizabeth x Fragrant Cloud cross but the two never flowered at the same time and my stored pollen failed...

Re: Current hips you are excited about?

I have a couple of hips (still not ripe) that I hope will survive and ripen in my basement under grow lights. The cross is Fragrant Cloud x Kordes Perfecta. I also have a couple Mr. Lincoln x Miracle On The Hudson.

Will hips ripen indoors?

I have several hips on plants (container) that have not ripened. It's getting to be frost time in the north east and so I brought the plants in to my basement. I have grow lights and the temperature in the basement is between 55 and 60 F. Will the hips still ripen?

Thanks
pmutalik.
