2018 Seedlings Are Growing!

The new 2018 seedlings are continuing to sprout and the earliest ones to sprout are already putting out their 5th to 6th leaflets.  That means that it won't be long now until the first rose buds appear - probably by next week!

As with every year, I plant many open pollinated seeds from some of my seedlings that produce a lot of hips to see if they germinate well.  I have decided to bring T31-1 into the breeding program because it sets lots of hips and the germination rate is excellent (see photo below).  It is from a cross of ('Midnight Blue' X "Basye's Thornless") x 'Blue For You'.
