Re: Winter rooting of cuttings

Erratum “callussed” norm term, my term a geologist’s inorganic prerogative for hard water environment.

Interesting article for me wrt question, apparent callusing resulted in improved take over NRC ?

Re: Winter rooting of cuttings

Changed my sad score method this year. Due to low takes last year, meaning only 1 of 25 lsabelle Skinner rooted, which was from the tip of growing cane, l focused on tips this year ... managed to get 3 GJ to strike plus RdxS and L. Gibsons - but discovered GJ inch plus roots rotted from too wet? a m...

Re: Splash and Dash equals Bad Technique?

Txs Duane for the info, As fate would have it, between yesterday and today (cool night) the hips turned to 60 to 80% dark black with some dark red showing. This l take as a positive sign. However all crosses’ seed from this year will now be subjected to medieval truthing by water trial. Effort justi...

Splash and Dash equals Bad Technique?

Can a small hip (with seed) relative to self-pollination hips indicate “not“ enough pollen applied or repetition required ? I usually only use a splash and dash method - and sometimes honey if note lack if adherence - don't normally do repetitive pollination. Inquiring as noticed this year some of m...

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Case closed - with 98% certainty in my books. An anonymous rose friend suggested its Rosa Virginiana Plena. To my eyes, when comparing to the "Old Rosarian" bloom photo and color on HMF it is dead on ... Now how does a R. virginiana decide after 10 years to change to a "Plena" ? ... as a friend said...

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

One written technical faux pas, vs my previously stated, is the study rose has NO petiole prickles. Caveat: <<5% of leaf petioles have, but only one prickle that are small and poorly developed. The 1807 exotic canina (pleno) description notes them appearing on the petiole, as well as on canine examp...

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Bush shot - the white and unopened buds mark extent of canes - gap between leaves makes me wonder if it wants to climb - can not get better shot without taking down rabbit fence.

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Well taking the pessimistic view it must be another rose came into the exact same spot - it happened to my last Red Dawn - was (The) Hunter. I take this opinion for now because can’t believe a whole rose became unstable and sported, plus id’ing a new diagnostic fail. This view point is in spite of t...

Txs There are a dozen buds plus in the waiting on a number of canes. And to be proven wrong, the majority have the appearance in bud of going semi-double. Being slightly impatient, I partially forced one on another cane and it seems to be semi. With rose now in full sun via hard pruning the neighbou...

Show and tell time. Pruning Kakawa to give more sun to an original R. virginiana (10yrs old) that was buried by it. Pleasantly surprised to find an old, but very semi-double bloom, versus normal over the years ... superior looking rose, using some imagine, if l had seen bloom earlier. Bloom same wid...
