バラの種蒔き [花・植物]

 昨日、ロサ キネンシス(Rosa chinensis) エンジェルウィングスの種を蒔きました。
ちゃんと育てたいなと思ってネット検索したんですが、バラに関する情報はネット上にたくさんあるのにロサ キネンシスひとつをターゲットにすると日本語サイトではなかなか情報がないんです。
やっとあるイギリスのサイト”Plants For A Future”でその記事を見つけましたが、ある重大な情報が!!
"Rose seed often takes two years to germinate."・・・芽が出るのに2年かかるですと[exclamation&question]

以下は、”Plants For A Future”よりRosa chinensisの記事の一部です。

Seed. Rose seed often takes two years to germinate. This is because it may need a warm spell of weather after a cold spell in order to mature the embryo and reduce the seedcoat. One possible way to reduce this time is to scarify the seed and then place it for 2 - 3 weeks in damp peat at a temperature of 27 - 32ーc (by which time the seed should have imbibed). It is then kept at 3ーc for the next 4 months by which time it should be starting to germinate. Alternatively, it is possible that seed harvested 'green' (when it is fully developed but before it has dried on the plant) and sown immediately will germinate in the late winter. This method has not as yet(1988) been fully tested. Seed sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame sometimes germinates in spring though it may take 18 months. Stored seed can be sown as early in the year as possible and stratified for 6 weeks at 5ーc. It may take 2 years to germinate. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle. Plant out in the summer if the plants are more than 25cm tall, otherwise grow on in a cold frame for the winter and plant out in late spring. Cuttings of half-ripe wood with a heel, July in a shaded frame. Overwinter the plants in the frame and plant out in late spring. High percentage. Cuttings of mature wood of the current seasons growth. Select pencil thick shoots in early autumn that are about 20 - 25cm long and plant them in a sheltered position outdoors or in a cold frame. The cuttings can take 12 months to establish but a high percentage of them normally succeed. Division of suckers in the dormant season. Plant them out direct into their permanent positions. Layering. Takes 12 months.
