Re: Current hips you are excited about?

Because my climate permits nearly year-round pollinating, harvesting and planting, I have seeds which were harvested many weeks ago all the way to hips which will be ready for harvest by mid November. I date the tags I write so I can harvest them at approximately 115 days from pollination. I'm excit...

Re: Pandemic rose exploration...

Humidity can change EVERYTHING. That and HEAT. In the LA area, I could root almost anything and I could bud on Fortuniana and it TOOK. Here? Nope. Fortuniana was SO unsuccessful here, I gave it away. Not enough heat to root it and not enough heat to get the buds to push. Everything simply turned bla...

Re: Need advice on roses, what type, where to grow, where to buy and where to plant

Hi! Welcome to the Rose Hybridizers Association Forum. There is a lot to unpack in your post. First, to obtain the best advice, you should share where you are, what city/state and Zone. What works well for coastal California won't necessarily work for upstate New York or even Belgium. Second, you ar...

Re: Can rose leaves turn themselves the right way round?

They will. Nature endowed them with all they need to adjust to our "better ideas" of what they require. Get involved in other things and one day you'll notice nothing is wrong and wonder when they did it.

Re: Can rose leaves turn themselves the right way round?

I've never had any issues with foliage being turned around upside down. It happens when you train climbers. I've not kept track of how long it takes for them to right themselves, but they do. If they are damaged or shaded by other growth so they don't feed the plant, the plant sucks out the chloroph...

Re: Extra plants to share of a R. wichurana seedling

This could be fun to treat like 0-47-19, making similar crosses with it as were made with 0-47-19. If you have more than enough to satisfy the demand, I can give one a home, please? Thank you!

Pandemic rose exploration...

This is Part 1 of a rather picture heavy blog post. It's the only way to share the type of "play" I've been guilty of! I hope you enjoy!

Re: My Sad Story

I'm glad you have enough to keep you occupied! As for relocating the squirrels... For several years, I worked in Pacific Palisades, a beach community on the Southern California coast off Los Angeles. I had a nursery client who also battled the squirrels. There, it's illegal to damage, kill OR reloca...

You're welcome! I hope you land somewhere you can have enough land and WATER, far enough away from fire danger. If at all possible, add as much solar as you can to the site and invest in a back up, whole house generator. We WILL be having power outages on a fairly regular schedule. We've just instal...

Hi Brian, welcome! Good luck on being able to retire to SD County! You'll love it! Lavender Dream is a monster. My guess from your description is the plant has finally produced enough roots to push that kind of growth. Get ready...moving to the "land of endless summer" is going to show you MANY such...

Re: Can anyone identify rose and blotches?

They just look like water spots to me. When sunlight hits dew, rain or irrigation drops, they often burn reddish.

Re: First known yellow rose

Nothing that I would want to use, David. I've already used Hugonis and none of the others possess traits I am looking for, other than Perle d'Or. If you had decades and were looking for increased cold hardiness, many of them might be of some use, but nothing for the conditions I live with.
