Picking Rose Hips

I have taken some of the wild rose bush round balls off the bush and someone told me if I let them dry out I can use these to plant a rose bush in my back yard. Is this true and if so how would I go about doing this?

I want to try and grow some roses from seed, but I have read some articles that say to pick the hips before they wrinkle. It is February, so are the hips still good? There are some still left on my plants, can I use them? Any feedback would be very helpful. Thanks!

Picking Rose Hips

In MN, I picked rose hips mid-winter, removed the outer shell and planted them in a good soil mix. I had excellent results. Wrinkles happen to rose hips and they'll happen to your friend. (02/23/2009)
