'Wild Rover' has been such a fertile breeder for me this year.. everything has stuck... I'll just duck outside with a note-pad and write down all the hips forming on it... am stocked with this one. All it's prunings this year will be going into pots to make more to make more flowers for next season's pollinating season too... this year my real pollinating winners have been 'Wild Rover', "Temple Bells", 'Comtesse de Labarthe' (everything has stuck on this too... am amazed really got a few hips with it and 'Scabrosa' forming nicely too), and 'Route 66'. Others have been hit and miss but these ones have accepted everything. Don't mean much if I can't get them to germinate though LOL

Cool! I agree that "Wild Rover" is easy to work with! Mine was stressed & still set hips...

It seems I have had a great success rate with "MHR", "New Dawn", "Palace Cargasone", "Maggie" & "Remember Me". All of these have multiple crossings on them.

Oh & as for getting them to germinate? *shudders* LOL

OK... no 'Suntan' on it... must do that...

So far there is:

Hot Choc, Comtesse de Labarthe, Softee, Routee 66, Othello, Honorine de Brabant, Mutabilis, Lorraine Lee, Lavender Jewel, Safrano, Sweet Chariot, Gold Coin, and Ebb Tide hips forming on Wild Rover Cool

Pollen to put on still is "Temple Bells", and 'Suntan'. Should try some 'Golden Chersonese' on it too.

Wow! Your "Wild Rover" has even more crosses on it than my "New Dawn" has (I have pollen from 10 roses on my "New Dawn" LOL).

It'll be interesting to see what comes of both of our "Wild Rover" x "Temple Bells" crosses if you get around to doing it (& I am sure you will!).

I like your "Wild Rover" x "Softee" cross BTW...

I've just run out and grabbed flowers of "Temple Bells", 'Suntan', and the last of a strange flush of 'Golden Chersonese' to get them ready for tomorrow actually LOL... reckon these will be my last ones for the season too.

Awesome...I am glad you are doing the "Temple Bells" cross! Wink

I thought I was done but I have a few more crosses I will squeeze in lke:

"Topsy Turvy" x "Cabana" &
"New Dawn" x "Maggie".

My absolute cut-off is the last day of Feb...but we'll see! LOL

Yeah.. if 'Cricket' makes any more flowers I'll put that onto "Temple Bells" too... but I don't want to do any more with what I've got. Got two climbing minis on there way now too; 'Gloria', and 'Laura Ford'. Will be giving them a work out next season too.

Now that I am doing crosses I look at roses I am interested in getting so differently. It's all about their very obvious (or sometimes hidden) potential as a breeder now instead of just wanting to grow it type deal! LOL

For the first time in 5 years I am going to order some roses this winter.

"Laura Ford" seems like a nice rose. I don't know anything about the other one. I want to get "Edith Holden" again...hmmm...add to list! Hahaha.

For the first time in a few years I'm not LOL

'Gloria' is a first gen. descendant of 'Laura Ford'. Wanted to get both to see how they'd go and Cass on HMF raves about it. I'm after 'Edith Holden' too... but not enough to order it LOL

Hahaha. TBH I have mixed emotions about buying via mailorder again. I have trust issues PMSL...

One year I ordered about 500 roses...huge mistake! I had pots everywhere & a sore back from digging & then there was no water agggghhhh! I will be sensible from now on. TBH there isn't too much I want now. Just a few striped & single roses & I am done. I like to see what I am buying these days!

Damo, correct me if I'm wrong, but my reading of rose literature says 'Monte Rosa' and there appears to be 3 types, is cream or pink. Not white with bits of green and a tinge of red. Where did you get if from? Cos that's the rose I've been looking for! I actually thought it was Virgo. When you tell a rose breeder that the rose you want is white with bits of green and a fleck of red they look at you as if you're mad! Rolling Eyes

Hi lauriek, the 'Monte Rosa' I have is cream with an apricot flush at first then fading to white & green (and then come the pink spots). It was bred by Rosa Eskelund of Denmark.

It is one of those patio forever roses (or something similar) & was from Big W. I saw standards of this rose in Bunnings too but I haven't seen this rose at either place for a few months.
