Planting Wild Roses From Seeds

QUESTION: Hi, I have wild roses on my property.

I would like to make a wild rose hedge, but I don't want to dig up or disturb the existing plants too much.

I was wondering what is the best time to pick the rose hips, what is the best storage method, and is it best to start them indoors or direct planting.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I live in Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia, Canada, so I do have a fairly cold winter here.

ANSWER: Hi Mark! It will take about three years, or longer, to get a plant going by seeds from rose hips.

The best time to harvest rose hips is in the winter or very late fall.

Here is my page with instructions for growing roses from rose hips.
Best Regards,
