I just received rose seed by mail...no instructions. I found your web site. Do rose seeds need stratification? And can you tell me what I need to do. Thank you.
Yes, rose seeds do need the stratification period to sprout and grow. Please keep in mind that some rose seeds available on-line at various websites are a scam. They are not rose seeds at all. Most will not ever sprout and are not any form of seed. Instead they are small clumps of organic material. Here is a link to my article on growing roses from see for you as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/growing-roses-from-seed.htm
