Answer: The seed pods on roses are called hips, and those are indeed seeds inside. Rose seeds need a period of cold stratification before they will germinate, so you'll need to store them cold for three or four months prior to planting them. (Your refrigerator should do nicely.) Plant them as you would any other seeds in moistened soil mix, cover with clear plastic and set in a bright location away from direct sun. Keep in mind, however, that the resulting plants may not resemble the parent much at all. Most roses are reproduced by budding, grafting or cutting rather than by seed. Have fun with your project!
