Initial post 12 days ago by Kathy Strong's Del Cerro Garden
Is there a way to connect my "garden" to my "listings?" My current garden is shown under "my listings" but did not come up under "my garden." I even tried to create a new garden with the same name, but that did not work to combine them and now I have two "Kathy Strong's Del Cerro Garden" shown. The new one should be deleted (which I cannot seem to do) and the old one linked to the "My Garden" tab.

Kathy, I have managed to merge your new garden listing with your old garden listing, so there is now just one. But I do not know how to link it with your Listings. I would suggest you send Admin an email on this - support@HelpMeFind.com

Is there a way I can look up roses by whether or not they bear ornamental hips?

This author wrote two books about "nature-near" roses and has a lot of info in them about hips:

A very long URL, but very informative, how the book's lay-out is.

To HMF administrators:
It would indeed be nice, if this would be part of advanced search... and a description for different forms/types of hips. Whether they have moss, glands, or prickles.... etc. etc.

Many thanks and I second the idea of adding this to the advanced search!

It is already possible to search; from 'Advanced Search', choose 'Growing'. Scroll down to 'Growing Notes Selection', and choose 'Produces decorative hips' (5th choice from the bottom).

Best regards,
Virginia

You're right Virginia, but that's a very crude tool. I meant a more sophisticated-one.
When one searches for decorative hips, lots and lots of roses pop-up. But whether the hips those roses produce are particularly attractive and or special is not clear.

Most roses produce hips and all hips are decorative in my humble opinion.
Comparing to the number of flower-photo's, the hip-photo's are a minority... if they are at all present for that rose.

Since most rose references don't describe- or even mention- hips, this is a case where users can help by leaving info that furthers the scope of rose descriptions. HMF volunteers assemble these descriptions from references + user comments and photos. I don't doubt that there are plenty of rose records that ought to have an indication that the hips are attractive, but don't.

I agree that photos of hips will be the most useful tool if you want to decide how special or decorative a rose's hips are; beauty being in the eye of the beholder. I would also like to see more photos of hips, and other plant details that can help with identification.

Cheers,
Virginia

And hips don't just look pretty they can be a great help in identifying different varieties and species too.

And during the last sting of Winter, the birds found them interesting too, to eat.
They didn't seem to care about which color or form.

So there's a timely reminder to take those photos of your rose hips before the birds eat them!

I already often photograph hips and prickles/stems of roses.
I really like those of Scharlachglut (they are nicely formed and big too) and those of Splendens are worth mentioning.

Hips also have culinary uses and as far as I know there's nowhere on the internet that assesses rose hips for taste. All I could find is that R. rugosa seems to be recognized by many people has having the tastiest hips. Unfortunately R. rugosa doesn't do well in our Mediterranean climate. Iceberg, Bonica, Old Blush, heritage climbing tea rose Madame Berard all provide hips in our garden. Mme Berard's hips are the largest by far, like little apples.

You might find this information to be of interest. Apparently R. californica has tasty hips, and should do well in your Med climate:

There are related discussions at the same (searchable) forum.

Jay-Jay only Rosa virginiana hips don't seem to be eaten by the birds. They are so bullet hard they almost hang on until flowering time.
My mother destroyed my milk teeth with rose hip syrup and Ribena (black current syrup) that was given to infants in their bottles in the late 1960's recommended as "health" foods!
Last year I crystallised Rosa canina hips and used them to decorate my Christmas cake I was going to take a picture but it had already started to be eaten before I realised and it was too late.

I grow that rose in our garden, but was never tempted to eat the hips, for they are prickly.
The hips of the Chestnut-rose taste like pine-apple.

Rosa roxburghii hips never go any colour with me other than green. They often all fall off the plant altogether often in the space of two or three days.

Oh that's interesting. I will definitely see what mine smell like this year. Last year we had two hard frosts at the end of April, that did massive amounts of damage to commercial orchards and vine yards and stopped my Rosa roxburghii from flowering so no hips. In China apparently they are made into wine.

Hello.
I noticed that under the "Societies and Associations" section you have a listing for the Riverside Rose Society. Please note that this organization disbanded several years ago. The members at that time split into 2 new rose societies: The Raincross Rose Society and the Mountain View Rose Society. The Mountain View Rose Society recently disbanded as well, and many of their members joined the Raincross Rose Society. You should probably remove the Riverside Rose Society listing from your site, and I would love to have the Raincross Rose Society added, if possible. Please let me know if that is possible and if so, what information would you need to get us added?

Thank You so much,
Coleen Berlin
Raincross Rose Society member

Riverside Rose Society. I have put a Note on this file that the Society has been disbanded. As the file contains photos, I am unable to delete it.

There were no photos or information of any sort in the file for the Mountain View Rose Society.
Therefore, I have just changed the name of this file to read Raincross Rose Society.

Can you add addresses and information under the Raincross Rose Society file please Colleen.
Thanks.

Hi
There's quite a few varieties listed as being sold by Harkness which we no longer sell. Can I send you the full list rather than do it one by one?
Thanks

Yes, of course... but maybe it would be better to just erase your current plant list and refresh your HMF listing with a current one. Are we missing many roses you currently offer ?

Reply #2 of 3 posted 30 JAN by Harkness
Probably best to do a new Harkness list but I'm not sure how to do this.
Thanks

The HOW DO I button has more detailed instructions but basically you just need to upload a text (or CSV) file of rose names one per line. Contact the support department directly and let them know what software you currently use to maintain your rose list and they can help produce the appropriate file to upload to HMF to update your list.
