I never opened a seed pod and usually cut them off to continue blooms here in Ca. I have opened a few hip th find some pretty large seeds and some smaller seeds in others but I want to get them to grow. Please if you've done this explain the kind of growing medium and the best time of year. Than scare me as to how long this might take to get an actual flower if the new plants survive,

RE: New roses from rose hips seeds

I have started roses from seed for the past 3 winters. I gather the hips as soon as they are fully ripe. I take the seed from the hips and plant them immediately. I have had good luck with some and not so good luck with others. I got 40+ plants from seed from one rose last winter. There have been a couple of dozen of the seedlings that have bloomed a couple of times already. I pot them up when they start to bloom. The ones that did not bloom, I tossed. The mother plant of these seedlings is Summer Wind which is a single bright orange. The seedlings range from solid white single to orange double. Seems no two are exactly alike. The rose seed seem to germinate in cool weather. I have never had one to germinate when the weather was hot. I have also had seed to germinate and bloom within a couple of months from 4th of July, Golden showers and some unknown that I did not label. Lots of fun. Go for it....
