I would just like to find an easy way to grow seed. I have
read many of the fine articles and links and it seems
that there are many different ways to rasie seeds.
I live in the south western U.S. I have a bunch of seed
that I would like to grow. I’m think of useing a blender
to open the hips then putting then into zip lock bags
with a damp paper towel. Then in a couple of months or so
planting them in flats. I don’t know what type of soil to use but I guess I have time.
I think this is all I have to do. I also believe that this
is the right time to grow them. I have tried to read
as much as i can before hand and not ask a dumb question.
But it seems there are alot of different ways to grow them.
I don’t have alot of time or money to spend so I want something very easy.
Thank you all
Do you have a copy of the “Rose Hybridizing for Beginners”?
There is a lot of information in the booklet regarding stratification of seeds and starting seeds.
You can order the booklet on the Rose Hybridizers Association web site. There are also articles and links on the web site that you may find useful.
The form for ordering the booklet is on this page. You can also use this form to join the RHA.
Thank u all very much.
I hope it answer alot of my questions.
I have take some hips blended them. Seems
like the blender smashed a couple of them.
I used water in the blender. I put them
in bounty towels with a little comet on them
and put alittle water on them in zip lock bags.
I hear that I can keep them in there for about
8 weeks then plant them.
This will be in winter though.
I read some of the webs site and they tell u all
kinds of different ways to do it.
I will order the book and I’m thinking of joining RHA.
Thank u all.
