Hi I'm going to cross two roses and just wondered whether after pollinating the mother rose I should cover it for some time and for how long? My worry would be that it may be pollinated again by an insect! Any advice please? Thanks

I acquired mine from a public rose but I asked permission from the caretaker and he was happy for me to take as much as I wanted (autumn). If you're taking from a solicitor I would DEFINITLEY ask permission lol!!!

I rooted this rose in water. I had others too but this was the only one that rooted. I never changed the water in the bottle, I just topped it up as I went along. I had put it in water in autumn and it then calloused and eventually rooted in spring.

Hi ya...flower opened and it's not yellow although it seems to have some yellow towards the bottom by the sepals. Could it be that first flowers are different? If not then it may be I mixed up my labelling! Oh well
It still smells beautifully though! I've gone back to the original climbing rose and took fresh cuttings and I'll try rooting them in water as I did this one! thanks for the help!

Mike, yes, having a go is the best thing to do! This is my first go at rose propagation and loving it!
