Rose seedlings. 玫瑰小苗.

Best time to grow Roses from seeds is late fall to late winter indoors or early spring outdoors. Do not dry the seeds.  Takes about 1.5-2 months to germinate.

1.Use yogurt or pudding this type of small container, punch the hole in the container bottom when in small quantity.  Seed tray in clear container with lid when in larger seed quantity.

2.Fill container with soil, top soil with well drained medium 1:1 mixed well.  Mist the soil but not overly wet.

3.Plant seeds into the soil, depth about the seed thickness, light cover with thin layer of soil.  Place the container in a re-sealable bag/clear plastic bag. Refrigerate.  Everyday open the bag for fresh air and check the progress.  Germination about 1.5-2 months.   Gently pick the sprouted seeds to plant in small pot, one seedling in one pot.  Keep moist and place the pot in partial shade/light shade, good air flowed location.

4.Firtilize the seedlings when plant has 4-6 true leaves.  Keep moist  and move the pots to full sun location.

5.When the plant growing normally, the plant will be able to have the first flower in summer.

以秋末到冬末室內播種或初春戶外播種為佳. 不可ˋ乾燥,過乾會失去活性孵不出來.  種子約1.5-2個月孵出.

1.種子量少時可用優格或布丁的小容器. 洗淨後打個洞當孵種子的小盆用.  種子量大時可用種子苗盆用有蓋的透明容器.

2.土壤用培養土+排水性佳介質以1:2混合裝好後噴水勿太濕.

3.點播後覆淺土. 用夾鍊袋裝好放冰箱冷藏. 每天檢查+透氣. 約1.5個月-2個月發芽. 待發芽後取出單獨小苗種植. 盆保濕,置於半日照/散光處要通風良好.

4.本葉4-6葉時可開始施薄肥.改全日照.

5.植株肥份夠的話夏天會開第一朵花.

Clematis alpina ‘Frances Rivis’ seed heads and seeds高山鐵線蓮種子

This alpine Clematis is very hardy and valuable with its early blooming.  It prefers in full sun to partial shade location.  Mature size:10′(H) X 5′(W).   USDA Zones:3-9.  This requires no maintenance as it is in the wild but if prune away the weak branches tips and seed heads (if not collecting seeds) in summer will promote more flowers in next spring!

這種高山鐵線蓮非常的強健其價值在於它是春天早開的鐵線蓮.  喜全日照到半日照的環境.    成熟株高為3公尺高,1.5公尺寬幅.  非常耐寒.  如野生時一樣是不需要維護的可是如能於夏季時修剪掉較弱的枝條和花球(若不收種子的話)可以將明春的花量提高.  適合涼棚或籬笆上和其它不同花期的鐵線蓮一起運用.

I believe almost everyone have seen it.  Such common tree almost everywhere in the world.  It is a fast growing, invasive tree.  It is so weedy and also has foul odour.  It is very difficult to get rid of it, so I hope people can weed the seedlings out.

But it is still has its purpose: medicinal uses and breeding ground of Ailanthus silkmoth (Samia cynthia).

Very hardy, it can grow in any full sun to partial shade location.  USDA Zones:5-8.  Mature size:50′-80′(H) x 40′-60′(W).  Self seed easily.

生長快速的雜樹之一,非常強勢.    能在全日照到半日照處生長.   植株有臭味.  當然它也不是一無是處.  它是有其藥用價值(收斂劑)和樗蠶(Samia cynthia)產卵的植物.  不過這樹很難清除,常常再長出.  希望人們在除雜草時能將小苗清除.

它非常強健,能生長在任何全日照到半日照的環境. 耐寒. 成熟株高約50-80呎,寬幅約40-60呎.  容易落子自行繁殖.
