aluminum foil over rose hips
The vast majority of my rose hips are not ripe yet. I started them late in the season (first year trying hybridizing) because we had an enormous amount of rain causing flooding in most of the city.
So I read somewhere (might have been on this forum) that if one puts aluminum foil around the hips, it will speed up the ripening.
Has anyone ever tried this? Does it work? I have little aluminum balls all over my roses. :)
