Hybrid Tea rose Cuttings and Rose seeds

Posted: 19/09/2013 at 21:17

Lots of people have offered advice, both on and off the forum but although I get some to take I can never rely on it. 

I grew Rosa rugosa from seed, sown this time last year and flowers already on 7 out of the 8.

Rosa majolica as well but no flowers yet

What sort of rose seeds do you want cairnsie. Chiltern seeds have a good selection. Species roses are the only ones you can rely on to be as you expect them to be. Hybrid teas won't come true from seed, though anything that makes hips will  produce something.

Prolonging flowering this autumn - Asters and crysanths and roses

Posted: 19/09/2013 at 19:13

andyou need some later flowering asters and chrysanths. Have a look and see what's flowering in other gardens and nurseries but beware of the very late chrysanths. I had some that were so late they just looked miserable in November. I'm miserable enough in November without that.

Help! Astrantia by seed

They don't need heat Rosemary. Hardy plants never 'need' heat though some can be germinated quicker with heat. Not Astrantia though. Sow it now and let it get as cold as it gets.
