Roses/rose seedlings


Hi. I am inquiring about rose seedlings and how to make my own hybrids. The former first.Where can I buy rose seedlings,and how much do they cost, since I'd like a variety of roses and which are the cheapest to get?
Next, How can I make my own hybrid roses without sacrificing the natural scents?

You can't get rose seeds
Only cuttings or root stock
Just buy the cuttings or make cuttings from plants you want.
To make hybrids
You must  cut from one and place inside the v cut of the mother plant. The main cutting is v shaped to fit inside the cutting on the main plain. Wrap with a small amount of peat moss
Wrap in aluminum foil.
Water into the cutting as not to dry
Takes about a month.
The new growth will have the character of both!
