Re: Any luck with OP seeds that overwinter on the bush?

I haven't cold stratified any seeds in at least the past eight or nine years and I continue raising FAR too many seedlings to comfortably deal with. I'm not using Arctic hardy species, but I don't even cold stratify any of the Asian yellow species, Fedtschenkoana or Hesperhodos seeds or crosses and ...

And the nasty task of having to grow the birds. We have them as wild pests. That's is sufficient, thank you.

Re: Chewing On It

The rock tumbler with an appropriate grit may well help! I have used soft pad sanding blocks, rubbing them together with seeds between them (irritating and awkward) as well as putting sandpaper in the bottom of a large pan and rubbing the seeds between the sand paper sheet and the soft sanding block...

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

Same here, and just as importantly, I won't support that behavior by giving them my money. The dollar in my hand is one of my most valuable "votes". It is THE one which counts. People can and will say anything, but it's what they put their money behind that does and says it all.

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

Do I understand all of that to mean that after all the tens of millions they threw at that "project", it resulted in pretty much nothing? Not a blue rose nor a rose which should help produce other odd colors through breeding? What a bummer!

Welcome. Can you post any photos of what you are trying to describe? From the description, I am not sure what to suggest.

Re: Source for Dr. Huey rootstock

The consensus is, those laws are written meaning you may not bring Multiflora or its parts into Connecticut to be planted and maintained AS multiflora. Using it as a properly prepared root stock under roses is totally acceptable and legal. And, per a Master Rosarian in Connecticut, Marci Martin, Hue...

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

If there aren't specifically identifiable genes, then it's a bluff. And, bluffs WORK. Back in the Nineties when Buck roses began being "a thing" again, Iowa State sent out a letter to every nursery listed in Combined Rose list as carrying them, stating anyone selling Buck roses "OWED" Buck's family ...

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

In most of the Monsanto trials, they tested for their marker genes then sued and it was up to the defendants to prove they DIDN'T plant Monsanto seeds. IF the patented plant contains marker genes, they can test for those genes. If your seedling also contains those artificially inserted genes, ones w...

Even if every rose society, Face Book page rose group and all of us refused to buy another of their roses, they wouldn't notice. There will be PLENTY of people encountering them in grocery stores, Lowe's, Home Despots, etc. who will think it's pretty and buy it simply because of that. What the vast ...

Re: Source for Dr. Huey rootstock

You're welcome! Multiflora is the superior stock for that area and those conditions. You already have access to it. Huey can be obtained but it isn't as desirable there for the previously mentioned reasons. If you can ethically, legally use the multiflora, I want to enable you to! If not, we'll work...

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

I don't think the "full throated response" is going to have much influence. From someone I know who is dealing with patenting plants, when contacting the patent office for information and advice, the ability to make it a "utility patent" was suggested and offered by the patent office employee. It on...
