The Q&A Archives: Cabbage Roses

Question: Do you know how to find the seeds and get cabbage roses to start from them?

Answer: Rose seeds are found inside the rose hips or fruits that form after the flower petals fall off, they ripen later on in the season. Most roses, though, will not come true from seed so your plants would not have the same flower as the parent. If you have an old fashioned rose you would like to try to propagate, a tip cutting would give you a more reliable result in that you would have the exact same flower. Here are directions on how to do that.

Good luck with your project!
