seeds changed color??
This is my first time with hybridizing roses.
Our growing season was way too short this year (with the flooding) and I only got one hip (Rock & Roll) to partially ripen. The seeds are in baggies now.
So, my friend gave me a ton of her hybrid rugosa seeds. I washed them with water and a bit of H2O2. Then I put them in dampened (not sopping wet - but holding water in a damp way) peat moss (with H2O2 - just a bit).
So today I went out to water my roses (potted) and found three hips that were still viable. I'm very excited!!
Abraham Darby - 2 seeds
Enchanted Evening - - 15
Frederic Mistral - 20
But now comes the questions!!
1. I checked my old seeds from the rugosas (in the fridge) and all of the seeds have changed from that pearly white color to a tanned and more shriveled seed.
- Did they die? Are they okay?
2. So my new seeds are still nice and pearly colored. Should I put them in the fridge? Will they change too?
3. Would the seeds be better in my insulated garage???
