Has anyone made any interesting crosses this season? I got an early start this year and have about 100 crosses done so far and I only have about 2 weeks left to go.
Some of my crosses are:

Heirloom X Midas Touch
Bronze Star X Angel Face
Heirloom X Bronze Star
Angel Face X Scentimental
Scentimental X Heirloom
Gemini X Scentimental
Peace X Easy Going
Brigadoon X Elle
Elle X Heirloom
Loves Magic X Peace
Dolly Parton X Easy Going

That is just a few, I have many more. Its alot of fun doing these, I hope they come through the four months ok.
Has anyone had any luck with some of the ones I posted? I would be interested in knowing if indeed they do take. Thanks

Those look like crosses I would make. I just cross whatever tickles my fancy at the time.
Good luck with them, and have fun doing it.

RE: New Crosses

Thanks Jon for your response. More than likely I will end up with about half of the crosses I made but for me, an amateur rose breeder, its fine. I have alot of fun doing it.

RE: New Crosses

Hello guys, I am new to roses. And I have just come across a very good deal on about 20 different rose bushes. And I was just wondering, what do u all mean about the crosses? Are u talking about grafting. I am new to roses, but not new to grafting and propagating. I have misting system set up. And I really would like to start propagating and grafting roses. Thank you all in advance for all your help.
