Rose hips in a juicer to prep for germination?

carlota(So. Calif. z.9)August 25, 2009


I used to put my rose hips through an altered blender to rough up the seeds for germination. It really did improve my sucess with sprouting.

Now I have a fancy shmancy juicer and I am wondering if the results would be the same or better. Has anyone else tried a juicer to prep their rose seeds?
