I grow roses from seeds of my garden last month but before planting i put the seeds in refrigerator for several weeks, I bought seeds of blue rose but the instructions said it should be soaked in water for 4-6 days at 104 degrees Fahrenheit , is it the kind of seeds ? Should i keep it worm or cold? Thank you very much for your kind help

Unfortunately some supposed rose seeds simply are not, they may be other seeds or in many cases just clumps of dirt and organic matter. There would be no real good reason to do such a soaking with rose seeds that I can think of. See this link for an article I wrote on rose seeds: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/growing-roses-from-seed.htm The seeds need that cold period to perform as desired.
