This is a high commitment, extensive area of work that could take years for results. It is best to hook up with a rose growers association in your area.

The only good advice on cross breeding or hybridization as they scientifically term the word is that the plants must be compatible with each other in other words a rose of one particular color say white can be hybridized with a rose of red color.

Cross breading of plants is easily accomplished via cross pollination of a female plant of one type with the pollen of the male you want to cross it with. This can also be done in reverse, known as the Greek way.

Its a wonderful idea. It is found to be very successful to cross bread two different plants. You will get a new beautiful rose flower from cross breading. But you have to take care while cross breading plants. Its stems will not be harmed and tie it with a bandage
