Re: Rose seed germination - new M.S. thesis

Joe, if you were not "that guy," I would have been "that gal"! No reflection on the quality of the research and the work that went into the study, though.

Re: RHA Zoom meeting?

I like the idea of a virtual conference! It would take some planning...but could be a real success. What sort of workshops would be of most interest?

Re: Roses with relatively better Japanese beetle tolerance
