Rosa glauca (Red-Leaved Rose) [15 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with challenging seeds that may require patience and experimentation, as there is conflicting information about their preferred germination conditions. One approach is to sow the seeds (about 1/4 inch deep) in a pot in fall to early winter and set it outdoors in a spot protected from mice, so they can germinate when conditions are right in spring. If no seedlings appear the first spring, leave the pot outdoors and look for seedlings the second spring.
If you sow much after December, consider giving the pot an artificial chilling period of about 3 months.
Some references suggest that the seeds first need a warm-moist period of 2 to 3 months before a chilling period of the same length. So, if you want to speed up the process, you may want to divide the packet and try both approaches.
Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.
Please read the description as well before ordering.
