A path to new roses.....
Very cool...I'm intrigued.
Thank you Janie, already they are sprouting like crazy. Soon lots of blooms will follow.
I have attempted growing seeds....it's been hit and miss...tell me, how long do the seeds take to germinate after being planted?
Rose seeds start to germinate in a few days (3-5), but may take as long as a few months. Most rose seeds germinate in about 3-4 weeks. Most seeds need to be kept in the refrigerator before planting to germinate properly. I put them in zip lock bags and give them a small spray of plain water from a spray bottle and leave them in the refrigerator for 6-8 weeks. Some rose varieties produce seeds that do not germinate at all, while others germinate very well. There is a lot of good searchable information on rosebreeders.org .
