We have a total of 18 watering lines outdoors, each line waters 38-40 pots. This year we cleared 11 of the 18 lines in order to make room for new rose seedlings.
Below are some of the older roses that I selected to keep.
The remaining roses were moved around to open up complete lines so that the new 2014 seedlings can be kept altogether.
Shown below is one of the newest seedlings (from 2014) that will be potted up and planted outside in the next few weeks. Culling is one of the hardest things to do when hybridizing roses, especially of the longstanding survivors. Fortunately, most of them will find new homes.
