  1. of course – hips!
    Finally that winter rose thing makes sense.
    Have you ever sown the seeds? You can get wonderful surprises, if you are patient enough.


      • before you sow, test the seeds for viability: drop them in a jar of water.
        discard the floaters and sow the rest.
        I have had such fun with this. Free and what’s more, new roses. You can then name them.

        • Thanks for the tip … this is a really lovely idea. Of course the roses born here will be the “throw-backs” from nature .. this sounds like it will be a very interesting project for me.
