Bring out the cats claws

Post by Guest on 2nd June 2011, 14:56

I did a cross with an unknown dark red heavily perfumed Ht and Mme c Testou last year, this seedling has not as yet bloomed for me and usually I do not keep seedlings that don't bloom when a seedling. This was kept because I think something really nice might come out of this cross, well I hope so after waiting a year. Both parents have big triangular thorns , but this seedling thought it might go R. Canina on me with its thorns, I just wonder where in the hell they came from.

You have been listening to question time in parliement to much Warren with a post named that roflmao
In all seriousness, I went back through Mme C's parents, interesting, the other thing I did not know that HT's went back that far. Do you know when they were introduced Warren.

Some times when I watch parliament question time, its amazing how they carry on, but the sad thing is there running this counrty GOD HELP US.

The first HT was La France, it was bred in 1867, but there are rumours around that some were bred before that date. They had also had terrible fertility problems as well untill they sorted themselves out.

Mme Caroline Testou is a great rose, and I can't work out why people don't use it more.

Have to agree with you Warren, however Julia has done a good deed by putting Bob in the corner with the Dunces hat on now he has his Carbon Tax.

Surprising how few petals some of these old HT's have compared to the later bred ones. Laurent Carle has pretty good petal count and texture for a 1906 bred HT. I prefer it to La France, Mme Caroline Testout and Lady Mary Fitzwilliam. Don't know anything about breeding these to date as my pollinating experience only goes back about 5 or 6 years. Have to rely on you and other old timers for this information.
