I’ve been in a rose club for many years and don’t know anyone who buys rose seeds.

Rose seeds do not produce the same rose as the plant they came from (just like a human being’s children are not identical to their parents).

Roses are normally bought as plants that are already growing, reproduced from cuttings of the original mother plant.

Commercially, these cuttings of a named variety have usually been grafted onto a different sturdy variety that provides the root section.

Sometimes a rose plant is “own-root,” meaning that it is just the cutting that has formed its own roots and grown into a bush.

I did want to mention that, of course, roses are grown from seed, even though you don’t know what they will be like.

Since you are in the UK, advice on growing roses should be specific to your climate and soil.

I don’t know what part you are in, and there are several rose societies in England and Ireland, but I’ll put a link below to information from a Scottish site that may be helpful to you:

If you already grow roses and you want to raise some from seed, look no further than your own garden. Stop cutting off spent flowers and allow them to set hips. I’m sure you probably have neighbors who would LOVE to have YOU dead head their roses and collect the seeds. Is there a public garden near you? It might be worth a visit to inquire if they would allow you to collect any hips they miss, too. Volunteering at that garden, or local nurseries can also help you to increase your rose seed collection. When you buy them from on line sources, there is no way to know what is going to come up once planted (IF anything). Search the threads here, one person planted “rose seeds” they bought and got radishes, which are probably better bargains than the rose seeds might have been.

Contact your local rose societies, as has been suggested, and ask if you may have some from their gardens. Contact campanula here on Garden Web Rose Forums. She’s in England and QUITE resourceful. She can surely either give you great advice or share some of her rose hips. She has a very eclectic taste and sensibilities so you’re sure to have a very interesting and wide selection of neat things to grow. There are many ways to come up with what you seek without supporting the online sources which seem to be somewhat less than honorable in this regard. Kim
