Re: Rugosa roses disease resistance

Hi Paul, I love Rugosas too, but working with then here on the Eastern Prairies is not that easy or successful. Most Rugosas, if they survive, do not thrive. I think because of the high pH on our soils. Rugosas become chlorotic, which effect their ability to make through our winters. A few years ago...

Re: Taming The wild Ones

Thanks to everyone for your insightful comments. Please keep them coming. I'll be coming back to this subject from time to time. One of the things I'm observing as I process these F1 hybrid seeds is the low seed set. Paul, in a recent thread, you wondered why Henry Marshall didn't use yellow Floribu...

Taming The wild Ones

Much have been written about breeding species roses into garden roses. The objectives of course is to eliminate the diseases garden roses and thus curtail the need for remedial spraying of harmful chemicals. Let me first say, I'm not a trained scientist. I'm hoping those who are trained in the scien...

Re: 2017 Seed Exchange

Hi Jonathan,
A seed exchange is an excellent idea. But why USA only? I've received and sent seeds over the Canadian/USA border
with no problems.

Re: Hip ripeness revisited.

Hi Tony, harvest the hips as you would cut flowers, and stick the stems in the damp sand. As you can see in my picture, I used one gallon pots with a trays under the pots. This way I can add a little water without disturbing the stems. The leaves may go mouldy, but keep an eye on the hips. This seem...

Re: Hip ripeness revisited.

Hi Tony, I'm not sure what latitude you are and how much more "summery" weather you can expect. Here on the Canadian Prairies. The day time temperatures have dropped to plus 3 deg. Celsius. I was facing the same problems you have. Fellow RHA member Doug Wild of Alberta suggested using containers wit...

Re: Yellow roses

Hi Johannes, Good question. I was out harvesting hips yesterday. Since I keep track of my failures as well as my successful crosses. I couldn't help but noticing on some of the F1 kordesii breeding stock, the intended cross failed and right next to it, are fat, juicy hips that are open pollinated. ....

Re: Yellow roses

Hi David,
Thanks for your reply. I crossed R.N.S with some of my own hybrids. And some of the Explorer hybrids.
What is the ploidy of R.N.S? Not listed on HMF.

Re: Yellow roses

As I posted on this tread before. I've employed Rise N Shine to breed yellows. These seedlings
have survived two seasons of Canadian Prairie winter weather and showing decent blackspot resistance.
What I'm having trouble with,few of these R.N.S seedling set hips.
Have anyone experienced the problem?

Re: Sweet Magic

Hi Simon, thanks for your input. I guess S.M is not well known, because it's not offered for sale in North America.
My idea was to cross it with some of my kordesii derived breeding stock.

Hi sharlene, hoping you are having a great summer.
Like you I see this often in one of my mothers. To the best of my memory, I still get exceptional germination from
this rose.

Re: Developing double flowers by selfing

Hi Paul,
Karl K delved into the subject of selfing a plant species to get certain genetic expressions.
The article he cited was by Luther Burbank breeding of the Beach Plum, (prunus Maritima).
Maybe Karl can republish some of his research.

Re: Klima

Hi Joe,
Greetings to you, nice to see you post. The HMF link by "jwindha", shows that Mitchie used Klima in her programme.
Can you please say something about its breeding habits? It's willingness to accept pollen, and set hips.
How well did the seeds germinate?
