OP-germinations

Post by Poesie on 15th April 2012, 20:17

I have some OP germinations. As you know this is the first time for me.
This is my first germination from one very small seed (nn ''country'' white shrub). There were 4 seeds and this one was the smallest.

It's now 7 weeks old and it is about 4 cm high. (1,5 '')

When it was time I started with fertilizing it with bio fertilizer. Now I think it's growing better. I saw that other seedlings usually grow faster. What do you think, is there still hope that this seedling will develop later?

I also have some other seedlings from different roses.
This is interesanting; it's from an old nn rugosa from a forgotten village.

And this is my first OP seedling of my roses from L.D.Braithwaite. Smile

When I saw on HMF that there are no descendants of LDB except sports I was very surrprised. Can you tell me more about LDB, ploidy and your experience with it.

Poesie, what I say will not make much sence to you I think, but, here in Sydney Australia there was a shop and they had a tree out in the country on property. It was killed by nasty people. The store owners live by the motto of that tree and their saying was "while I live I grow". Poesie while that seedling and others like it might turn up, keep it alive. The discarded seedling might be a "winner".
As for your question about LDB I will think about it.

Thank you David Smile . With me this seedlings will be safe. They all have equal chances. I respect them all. Coming up Roses

It's also interesanting that almost all of the hips were outside through the winter on the shrubs. And this winter was cold. Only LDB hips were harvested before the winter.

Keep all your seedlings. The most exciting part is watching the first flower bloom. Then keep them all growing over summer to see how they develop. I usually keep my seedlings in pots for at least two years before making any decisions.
God luck!

Shocked Dave, it is not so special, why do you think so?

Roseman, more information next week. I was in Serbia but I haven't been in Croatia yet. Smile

I love singles and the parent is such a tough beautiful rose, it will probably be the same!

Poesie,your seedlings are really lovely. Well done! I particularly like T.F single seedling and the Village white. Is the village white similar to its seed parent?

No, the mom of the white doesn't have the green eye and it isn't so full-pettalled.

The new seedling bloomed yesterday. It's a seedling of Waterloo (hybrid-musk) with cream - white colour and is very fragrant.
