Re: Effect of daylength, light intensity and temperature on growth and flowering in roses

Hi Karl, Can you please explain in layman's terms how and why Warren Millington can get such great results using Canadian breed roses like Therese Bugnet,(as posted on FB). TB doesn't thrive, and hardly flowers or set hips for me here in the Manitoba. For a long time, I thought TB was sterile. Until...

Re: Help.. my babies are turning yellow!!!

Duan, I don't how long you have had your roses in the bigger pots. I started out using soil from my garden as a medium for roses in pots. I noticed over time that the potted roses became lethargic. Their flower production went down, and they succumbed after a few years. My farm agent told me I was a...

Re: Help.. my babies are turning yellow!!!

I agree with Joe's. The groundwater in my area in high in calcium. I never water with tap water,
I bring in snow in a garbage can, melt and filter it and use it on all of my indoor plants and rose seedlings.
In summer I have plastic totes under the downspouts to harvest rainwater.

Re: Morden Series for health

Peter, You said it much better than I could. Rob, what I did since I started breeding roses 20 years ago this year. I started off with the Mordens like Adalade Hoodless and Morden Centennial. I crossed them every which way I could and planted out the seedlings. As Peter said, you need large numbers ...

Re: Morden Series for health

Hi Rob, Instead of using Morden roses, how about trying one of the Explorer roses? I find they are more disease resistant than the Mordens. I still sometimes use Morden Blush if I acquire some species rose pollen. MB is very fertile and the seeds germinate easily. The best all-around Explorer rose f...

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Hi Joe,
Have any of these crosses yield any thornless seedlings?
How long did you have to wait to get blooms on these hybrid seedlings?

Re: reblooming botanical roses

Thanks for your kind words Andre. R. Acicularis was collected from the wild here in MB. I was surprised at the variations of the flower and hip shapes of this rose. I hope to return to this site and document some of there variations. Karl King suggested that there maybe double specimens in wild spec...

Hi Andre, I've worked with Fedtschenkoana since 2006. I crossed it with Morden Blush and R. Acicularis.

Re: Diploid x Higherploid or Higherploid x Diploid

I"ve always wonder about this too. I tend to use the cultivated rose as the seed parent. The seed set is often higher and germination more predictable. One thing I am having trouble with, is getting viable offspring from (wild sp. x Garden Rose) x Garden Rose. I wonder if environmental conditions, i...

Re: Percy Wright's roses

I have found over the years of using Hazeldean to create yellow non-fading yellow roses. Hazeldean does not pass on its yellow colour to its offspring readily. Hazeldean seedling have healthy foliage, but many of the seedlings also produce deformed vegetative buds that do not open in cool, cloudy we...

Re: Percy Wright's roses

Hi Warren, I've been working with Hazeldean for about 15 years. Progress is very slow with just one hundred days from last frost in sping to the first frost in fall. Like some of the rose breeders in this cold climate, I went back and read not just about Percy Wright roses, but some of the other Mid...

Re: Heart's Design

Lack of winter hardiness is one of the biggest problem I've face in my quest. Since I'm trying to achieve a rose with a prominent white centre, I thought a starting point with a rose without many petals would be a good idea. Roses like, Gizmo, Hoot Owl, Space Odyssey. Joe, your pics. demonstrate the...

Re: Heart's Design

Thanks everyone for your input.
I've been working on this for almost 20 years with some progress, but in all of my seedlings
the outer edge was not vibrant enough, more like a deep pink or bled into the white centre.
Maybe these goals are unattainable.

Heart's Design

Trying to develop some roses with deep red outer petals with clear white centres.
This seedling has Betty Boop as a parent.
Any suggestions?

Re: EGS1 - growing & breeding experience

I'm still hoping to acquire EGS1 and use it with some of my own seedlings. Does EGS1 set hips, and if so, does it have
good fertility when employed both ways?

Re: SEED HARVESTING FOR 2017

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?

Re: Rugosa Offspring and Variations

Very nice Warren,
You seem to have the optimal climate for coaxing the most out of your roses.
Manitoba's overnight wind-chill temperature dipped to -44 deg. Celsius.
Not a place for the faint hearted. Best of the New Year to all.
