Rose grafting question
[Return to Topics]

This came up today. We have some orange colored roses in the yard. We have some white roses also. Can the limbs from a white rose bush be grafted onto the orange colored bush in the same way a pecan can be grafted to a pig nut tree limb? Thanks:

We had a little grafting in vo-ag class back in
high school, but that was 30 years ago and if you don`t use it, you loose
it. But i would think it would be simular to
grafting fruit trees. Found this site.

thats what I call wild pecan trees, they make pecans but are too bitter to eat. Probably got some other offical name.

We call them bitter pecan trees here in SE Texas. The tree looks almost identical to a pecan tree but the nut is totally different. I've also heard them called pig nuts. I wonder what some pickled pig nuts would be like?

Herb, what part of SE Texas you in, I grew up in the Cleveland Tx area but went to school at Baytown. Lived a while around Broaddus, Sam Rayburn area. Thats where I heard of them called pignuts, but you are right, they are usually called bitter or wild pecans.

I live in Dayton which is about 25 miles south of Cleveland. I grew up in Kenefick. We had a big bitter pecan tree in our back yard.

Hey guys,

I grew up in Nederland but the mosquitos and roaches hauled me off and dropped me in Colorado about 20 years ago.

I had some mighty fun times at the Airport Inn Club in Nederland back around that time!!
There was one of the best local bands playing there! Great music and dancing, we used to go over there from Liberty.
Wish I could think of the band's name!!
A couple of Wheeler brothers were in it.
