Re: Rose replant disease?

Where "happy", anything which suckers aggressively or self seeds rapidly, IS "invasive". Anything.

Re: Rose replant disease?

Those initial "runts" you write of, Plazbo, seem to me to be genetically weaker as they just don't generate sufficient root systems to grow stronger and healthier. The ones which do amazingly well DO generate tremendous root systems. The runts seldom develop into much and it is they which have produ...

Re: Rose replant disease?

Yes, I recycle my potting soil. Sometimes I mix it with fresh, sometimes not. It all depends upon how much I have, how much I need, what the condition of my back is and how lazy I am feeling at the moment. If I find gall in the pot, no, I don't reuse the soil. Otherwise, I don't worry about reusing ...

Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

You're welcome, Rob! Your seedling is beautiful! I imagine if you could dry pollen to send, it should get there without a problem. It did, however, take several weeks when mailed as First Class mail. I sent the various types in small glassine bags used for stamps.

Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

I can imagine their being uber careful as far as plants are concerned but I've not had any issues sending pollen into Canada. I did it last about a month ago. The envelope went right through without issue.

Re: 'ploidy question

Perhaps someone can find the information in this paper? It seems as if it should be there, but I have run out of time to dig it out. Good luck, Judith!

Re: Environment and gene expression

If the hibs would set seed. None of the forty types I had down south would there and none of them here will, either. Dangit.

I'm sorry Karl, this post was identified by the system as spam and required moderation. I'm not sure why. Perhaps the other moderators with greater experience may be able to provide an answer.

Re: Newbie question

Which all makes sense when you think about it. Nature is going to provide as many chances of success as she can, using whatever methods she can muster. I read and use the 110 days simply because in my impatience, I would pollinate and then plant the same day, if possible! LOL! Like the two young vul...

Re: Newbie question

Welcome Mongoose! Generally, hips are mature after roughly 110 or so days after pollinating. I date the tags I use to mark my crosses so I don't have to guess and wait until they change colors. Some change dramatically, some don't change at all. It's a rose you will never grow in Zone 5, but the old...

Re: Something interesting...

Thank you, Philip. I grew both d'l Ain and Lambelin in Newhall and swore after enduring them there, I would NEVER grow them again. Syphilitic hemophiliacs, both of them.

Re: Something interesting...

Today, that Art Nouveau seedling opened further, showing some rather interesting traits. It resulted from the cross of (Secret's Out X April Mooncrest) X [(First Impression X April Mooncrest) X Art Nouveau]. It inherited the scent from Secret's Out, the white sport of Secret, and April Mooncrest. It...

Something interesting...

Someone on Face Book messaged me with the information about this new rose available in Great Britain. She indicated it was bred from Baron Girod de l'Ain and Roger Lamblin, though I have no knowledge of how she knows this. It IS an interesting looking rose and it does appear to be related to at leas...

Probably nothing most here would find interesting or be able to grow, but this is [(R. Brunonii X R. Gigantea) X Mlle Cecile Brunner) X [Reve d'Or X ((Echo X R. Gigantea) X Marie Van Houte)]. That translates to Nessie X Faith Whittlesey. It's two years old in a two gallon can. The foliage is good, i...

Re: Odd little seedling

"Dumb question, but as I don't dabble in such... Would grafting that to an appropriate root stock change its demeanor?" Not dumb at all, Philip. It may, if the reason it does what it does is because it doesn't generate sufficient roots of its own. Adding more vigor to the roots may well alter what i...
