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.
