Hello from germany

Post by GreenLife on 7th February 2010, 21:16

Hello to everyone on Rose Talk Australia.
I enjoyed browsing this forum so I might as well join you Smile

My favourite roses are those of old fashioned looks, and specially the nicely scented ones. Since 2004 I have been growing roses from seed. I did some hybridizing, however most seedlings are op.

We have winter here and it has been very cold. Fortunately we had also a lot of snow; so no rose activities just now.
Wait and see how the roses survived. Some of my seedlings are in pots and if they survive they must be truly hardy

Have a nice Sunday Ulrike

Welcome Greenlife, your comment re freezing conditions turned my thoughts to a rose I have called 'Arctic Flame' bred by Brownell family who are famous for breeding hardy roses. I am going to check how it grows in heat hoping it is hardy at both ends of the temperature scale. Might just be a snow rose.

David,
you did not write which words, I assume it's the 'Bodensee'. That must be a funny word in your ears, it' not a puddle, it's the German meaning for the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Dunno the oz lingo for that

Bernhard, the other one is "Ulrike". Bodensee was the other and thanks for the translation of it.

Hi Simon
did send two Pictures to you Smile

Just checked the link I gave above: I logged out of Australian Rosetalk and of the other forum as well. For me the link worked. I used the function "open in new window" and the picture came up.

Cheers Ulrike

I have just looked at the link Ulrike gave in her post and it worked OK for me.
Ulrike could you supply the crosses of your roses or the names that they come from. Are the fluorescent lights normal or grow lights. The seedlings look very healthy. I hope they all survive for you and then we will see some wonderful flowers.

Thank you Simon Smile

The second picture shows my crop of seedlings 2010. The lights are ordinary fluorescent lights. They come very cheap at 4 each in DIY shops. It is important to choose the type "cool white", as they offer a spectrum of light that is very close to the optimum for plant life. I also take care to avoid any chances of infestation; that means using only clean substrate and new plastic mugs. And I keep them in our spare bedroom without any other plants that could spawn trouble.

The seedlings are op seedlings. I collected small numbers of hips from a great number of sources, so they are really a very mixed lot. My selection criteria were: repeat flowering, romantic looks, scent and health. Many of the hip parents are old garden roses, however it would be along list to give all the names of the hip parents.

The only proper cross that germinated until yet is C17 x Louise Odier.
The first picture shows C17 which is a seedling op 2008. It started flowering in 2009. C17 proved to be very floriferous and healthy; flowers very small, double and slightly scented. LO has a very strong scent, but is prone to blackspot. So I am curious what will develop from this combination.

So I will report later how things went on....
cheers Ulrike
