Hello from Switzerland

Post by Schuler on 18th October 2011, 22:08

Heyhey

My name is Philipp and I live in Basel, Switzerland.
I started to grow roses just this spring when I rent an allotment garden and bought 'Rose de Resht' - so I started to
get more informations about roses and decided to start my own breeding line :-)

I want to breed in two main gropus - the first (the diploid one) with R. gigantea, R. rugosa and R. persica
and the second one includes R. alba 'Maxima', 'Rose de Resht', Rosa foetida 'Persian Yellow' and R. 'Persian Sunset' (R. persica Hybrid, tetraploid).

Now I have my first experiences with OP hips which I collected from several shrubs in Sweden and Basel.
I let them in the fridge for about two months at 5C - as I heard that should be the best way to bring them into the germination mode Wink

Best regards,
Philipp

Hey Simon
I think it is also really interesting to know how roses varry in different climates (not only groth, also fertility etc.), so its great to share informations with peaple from all over the world.

I read you're working with rugosa, which is also one of my favorite species.
Is there also Rosa persica growing in Australia? This species should be a good source of genes for dry climate i think.

No, persica itself is not here but we are trying to bring persica lines into Australia to begin working on it. I have about 300 persica hybrid seeds in the fridge right now!

300 persica hybrid seeds ?! holy crap Very Happy thats amazing.
Do you know what kind of hybrids they are?

I might buy Nigel Hawthorne:
It's a Hybrid between persica and a rugosa Hybrid, sets hips and is hopefully a diploid - and if it sets hips it might be easy to go back to a more rugosa like rose with persica like flowers... Very Happy

Nigel Hawthorne is meant to be sterile, unfortunately Sad My seeds are open pollinated seeds sent to me by Jim Sproul in the U.S. Thumbsup

So you know what you have to do Simon - making it a tet Very Happy
And maybe - as we know - might it be a little fertile in an other climate than europe -> down under for example Fingers Crossed
