1 packet (20 rose seeds) (25730)
Sow Rose seeds from January to May on the surface of a good seed compost and lightly cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the compost damp and do not exclude light as this aids germination, which usually takes up to 30-90 days.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Rose plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun on any moist, rich fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 35cm (14") apart.
