Any luck with OP seeds that overwinter on the bush?

Just before the Snowmegeddon hit Texas I noticed some open pollinated hips on some of my hybridized roses. Because it HAD BEEN a rather mild winter up to that point I decided to harvest them. All of these hips had set in the fall and matured over the winter. I plan on planting them without any chill...

Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

Glad you enjoyed my channel. I started the videos for my Grandkids who are now in their 20's and also for all the transplants in Texas who have not gardened here before. Plan to do more this Spring.

Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

My cuttings are done in builders sand. I use plastic dishpans with about 8 holes poked in the bottom with an ice pick. The builders sand is about 2 1/2 inches deep. I have a solar activated mister that comes on in the morning at first light and runs 30-45 minutes per day depending on the time of yea...

Re: My Yellow Hybrid China, Champagne Bubbles

A week after I potted up the cuttings we got hit with Uri. I watered these well and brought them in to my sunroom. They have been inside for a week now. Fortunately we did not loose power and these little jewels are already sprouting new leaves.

My Yellow Hybrid China, Champagne Bubbles

I have been watching this one for a while and this fall I put in about 14 cuttings to root. I just potted up 11 and 3 are not quite finished. The cross is Ducher X Nacogdoches/Grandma's Yellow. I have been very pleased with this one.

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

I would not be inclined to buy a rose I could not use to hybridize with. My space is too limited for that. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: stratifying in the south...

I have a wine fridge in my sunroom which I use for stratifying. I also stratify my daylily seeds and store other veggie and flower seeds. I only give up space for two bottles and it works great.

The Yellow Rose of Texas?

A few years ago I heard that some Texas rosarians were doing Trials/Research for a rose to be officially designated as "The Yellow Rose of Texas". Nacogdoches/Grandma's Yellow was a leading contender. Just wondering if anyone has an update?

Re: First Crosses?

Philip, I've been so busy in my own yard that I haven't done much driving around. Will probably see some Saturday when we drive down to Victoria. Have the hummingbird feeder out but haven't seen any yet.

First Crosses?

Yesterday I made 8 crosses, the first of the year. Today I will make 8 more if the south wind will die a bit this evening. This the earliest crosses I have made since 2012 and that was a pretty good year for me. For this farmer's daughter hope springs eternal. Hubby asked me recently how many more y...

Re: Category: It's always something!

I live in a small town in Central Texas. About 7 years ago someone in this part of town allowed some of their chickens to escape, the city ordinance allows 5 chickens to each household. They keep laying eggs and hatching new generations. Of course none of these chickens have had their wings clipped ...

Stephen, thanks for the suggestion, I was not familiar with Lady Pamela Carol, I may need to obtain that rose. Karl, I have had William Allen Richardson on my wish list for quite some time, it may be time to move it to the buy list. Also, have a local friend with Crepuscule so I can get some pollen ...

Yellow China

[attachment=0]09-13-01 (2).JPG[/attachment][attachment=1]09-13-01 (3).JPG[/attachment]One of my hybridizing goals has been to develop a yellow china. First off, china roses do quite well in my zone. Second, I like yellow roses and there are very few yellow chinas. This is a cross I did in 2013 of Du...

Pollinations on second bloom flush?

It has been a cool rainy Spring here in Central Texas. We had a mild winter and spring blooms were slow. I am now into the second bloom flush and made 8 crosses yesterday. I usually finish crosses by the middle of May but since we haven't hit the 90's yet I am still making crosses. It will be intere...
