Rose Seeds

Posted: 20/03/2017 at 16:12

I sowed some Rosa rugosa in autumn, they germinated in 3 weeks and flowered at the end of the following summer, (not much but enough to show me what colour they were..

Roses aren't difficult, just the multicoloured bit.

I also go a forest of roses after I made rosehip wine, poured boiling water on the hips, left them a week, strained them off and threw them on the garden.

you can grow roses from seed but those multicoloured ones are an internet scam.  

Sow the seeds in compost, nothing special, and see what you get, might even be roses

the red one is much more robust and grows much quicker. Midwinter Fire will get fairly big eventually if not cut back but at a quarter of the speed of the red one (or even slower). You can't cut it back regularly and expect it to come back like the red ones.

Jasmine with yellow stems?

Can you post a photo Allthegear? There are so many Jasmines, including one that isn't a jasmine, it's hard to know where to start

I was trying to work out how long Marlorena. Might be 20 years. It seeds around providing babies to pass on. 

I think I might need to find a purpurea, though mine are quite purple for the first few weeks.

Plants can be suggestive 

Plant I.D please

spring and autumn are generally recommended for evergreens. I think at 8 to 10 foot these will have large roots, get as much as you can. Remember that the fine bits at the ends are the bits taking up moisture and nutrients. Survival if you just get thick root, is unlikely
