Hybridizing New Roses

4 months ago
last modified: 4 months ago

I really want to grow roses from seeds. I know a little about stratification and cooling the rose seeds for a while, but I need to know more about potting soil for them and how to grow them. I also need to know if Rose Mosaic Viruses can transfer to seeds. Will the seedlings be born with the virus, or does it not transfer? I was going to cross earth angel with blue moon or blue girl, but I don't know how to avoid contamination from other pollen. If you have successful seedlings please show pictures also!
