"TO BE OR NOT TO BE'.  That is the question hybridizers with a great many two year old seedlings must answer, as it is important to separate the plants into those with a future - - "TO BE" from those which should be discarded ("NOT TO BE").  I will provide my criteria for making this decision and as well, adding another sub-grouping titled "Bridge Plants" to the "TO BE" classification.  Slides will be shown depicting these decisions.  Also, a few rose seedling slides will be included where I must use the same criteria.
