Sun Requirements: Partial shade, partial and full sun Description: Climbing roses are a popular plant for vertical gardens. Interestingly, botanists do not consider them true climbing plants like vines because they don't grow their own support structures to hold onto a surface. Therefore, they need a helping hand and a vertical space to attach to and grow on. How to Germinate/Grow: How Do I Germinate Rose Seeds? Growing roses from seed is not the quickest or easiest way to propagate them. However, this method can provide more satisfaction than others when efforts pay off. There are many idiosyncrasies when it comes to different types of roses and what their needs are for growing. But there is a basic method to cultivate rose seeds and plant them successfully for future growth. Cold stratification is the process of exposing seeds to a temperature of approximately 35 degrees Fahrenheit. You can do this by placing them in your refrigerator. Store them by placing them inside of a folded paper towel that has been moistened with half-part purified (bottled) water and half-part bleach, then placing them in a zip-lock bag. Don't forget to mark the varieties if you are using more than one kind of rose. Keep them in the cold for 45 to 60 days. You can plant seeds immediately after stratification if there is no danger of a heavy frost. Use a mixture of 50 percent planting soil and 50 percent vermiculite, and place seeds a half-inch apart from each other. Use small, shallow trays as long as there is good drainage. Place them in direct sunlight, or use grow lights for 16 hours a day. Keep moist with regular watering. The third leaf that appears from the soil is the true rose leaf. After two or more leaves are visible, plant the seedling in its own pot. A 3-inch plastic pot will do. Make sure you have it in direct sun or are using grow lights. Help it along with half a teaspoon to 1 quart solution of Miracle Grow and water.
