Breeder Interplant Roses

A peek in the kitchen of breeder Interplant Roses B.V.
I did not know selection of roses is such a labor intensive process. A lot of patience is needed before you can finally present a new rose.
Interplant Roses is a pioneer in breeding roses.
Under the inspiring leadership of Robert and Martijn Ilsink, many beautiful roses have already been selected.
 
With great attention and precision, the people at Interplant roses are at work.
Leaf for leaf is picked off the rose and then they cut the pollen wires into a tray.
The dried pollen is then applied with a brush on the pestle of another roses type.
After ‘crossing’ the 2 species, the fruit of the rose will slowly start to grow.
The seeds of the rosebottel are sown in seedlings and get a cold treatment in the coldroom.
After the cold treatment, the seed will “wake up” in the warm greenhouse and start to grow.
Then it will be very exciting …. What color is coming out of the seed?
 
You need a lot of patience for the breeding process.
The first selection of seedlings takes 3 months. The color will become visible, but with which color will we continue?
Then there is a second selection, are the plants strong enough and does the flower meet the quality requirements?
A third selection to see how the stitch material behaves. (Budwood)
The total process takes years before a flower can be tested in a vase.
 
With this science I have got a different look on a rose.
It’s incredibly interesting to mix 2 colors with different values to a new discovery.
Breeding Roses is an adventure!
