Rose seeds

Post by jordlanham3 on 26th May 2017, 18:15

Hey guys,

My neighbour gave me a bunch of rose hips he got. Some were orange and some still green. I've pulled all of the seeds out of the orange ones, just wondering what the next step is? Will the green ones ripen off the bush or should i just cut it open and try those seeds as well?

I'd try all of them as some hips don't turn red or orange. I'm only new at this but they need some cold treatment in the fridge before planting. I clean mine and wrap them in some damp kitchen paper and put them in a zip lock bag and put them in the fridge for a couple of months. Check on them after a month to see if they are germinating in the fridge. If not put the back in the fridge. I don't normally leave mine for more than a couple of months. After their cold treatment you can plant them out.
Hope this helps,
Louise.

Jordan Go directly to your fridge and remove them from the cotton balls, they will rot. Asa louise has said place them on some damp/moistened paper towel, not wet. I place mine on a single piece, I do not cover mine in the paper, place in zip loc bags with date and name of rose if known on bag. The reason I don't cover mine is I can see them if some germinate and remove without disturbing the other seeds, some will germinate, most won't. The time to takle them ot varies on the type of rose that they came off, Species roses take longer. If you get get some germination, place them in small pots, say 75mL tall. A good potting mix, something that will stay mist not wet will be your next step.

Can I keep them in the little containers with a layer of paper towel on the bottom or does it have to be a zip lock bag?

Yeah it does have a lid David. Its a smaller version of those clear chinese takeway containers.

How long do i keep them in the fridge for? Until they start to germinate?

That is the million dollar question Jordan. As it is Hybrid Tea rose "we think" it could germinate within a month, maybe three months. It is normal to leave them in there over Winter. Whatever happens, take them out just prior to Spring and so them so they can aclimatise and shoot in the cool. Have you got anywhere that is warm if some do germinate and pot them up, as young plants they won't like Winter outside.

Okay cool! Thanks. Yeah I have a little greenhouse I could keep them in. So as soon as they start to germinate pot them and put them in there?
