Can roses be grown from seeds?

I have a “proud land” hybrid tea rose that just produced a bloom. If i were to plant the bloom would the seeds inside grow? or are there even seeds inside? I love roses and want to grow more plants… please help
the roses grown on this plant are red to black

    You have to wait until the seed pod, or rose hip forms and gets ripe. then you MAY be able to grow a new plant. However, it probably won’t look like the mother plant, since it was fertilized by another plant. You can take a cuttingfrom the plant, put some rooting compound on th ecut stem, and grow this in virmiculite. until it has enough roots to pot up. this would ensure that the plant was the same species.

    nope. they’re bulbs. bulbs don’t contain seeds.

    The best way to reproduce this rose is either by taking a cutting (and you need to find out how to do that), or by layering. Layering only requires tht you take a long reed of the plant and put it into a good soil for growing roses, dig into the ground, lay the reed down, cover it with dirt, and lay a rock on it or take a forked stick and hold it down. If the rose is a hybrid, you might not get a seed that will work.

    Doubtful that you could get a rose bush from a seed. You can buy inexpensive bushes for less than $2.00 sometimes and they grow pretty quickly. Professional growers graft different varieties onto a root stock plant.

    Yes you can; check out these instructions for germinating the seeds:

    I have never heard of roses grown from seeds. They are generally grown from cuttings. ie cut a branch and put the cut branch in soil. When you attempt to mix two varieties together, you graft them. Go to your local gardening supply store. or horticulturist. They will happily show you how its done. Gardeners love to share their knowledge as they love plants as you do.

    If you want to have another rose bush just like the one that you have use a method called propagating. That is prunung off a healthy clipping of of the existing plant just below the knuckles, dip the bottom in rootone after you trim most of the leaves off put it in a mixture of potting soil sand and water , a soupy mixture (mostly water) and when you see new leaves starting to form carefully transplant the new plant and keep it moist.
