Excess (Sir Thomas Lipton X OP) X OP seeds.

(Sir Thomas Lipton X OP) X OP seeds.

Sir Thomas Lipton is normally sterile. One year I had one branch that formed hips. I got a number of germinations from the seeds ; but I think only 2 survived. I think that this mother (Sir Thomas Lipton X OP) is a tetraploid.

The procedures to request some are:

  1. Please reply by e-mail.

  2. Please send a different e-mail for each request (makes putting into folders straight forward).

  3. Please make sure the name of the rose is on the request.

  4. Please give your name and post office address in a form that I can simply cut out and tape to the package.

  5. Because I use a priority selection process based on when a request is received, please do not send blanket requests (“send me all”) or future requests (“if you decide to distribute XXXXXXX, please send me some”). The only time I do not follow the priority selection process of “first in - highest priority” is if the person has not requested any earlier this season or if the person requesting had sent me one of the parents in that particular cross.

  6. People living in the U.S. And Canada have not reported post office - customs problems. If you request from a different country please be aware that I write: “Contents: Rose Seeds” on the package. It is understood that the requestor is responsible for any expenses that customs requires.

  7. There is no postage charge to the requestor.

How winter hardy has (Sir Thomas Lipton X OP) been and how is its disease resistance?

Hardy and no disease problems that I have noticed.
