That all depends on the type of rose seed it is. Some can take up to three years to germinate.

I started some rogusa rose seeds this spring. Planted them in individual cells in a tray. Used bottom heat and grow lights. after 2 months there was still nothing so I started checking on the net as these roses were for a community project and we needed 100 rose bushes by early summer.
Thats were I found out that they could take 3 years. Needless to say I did not have 3 years to wait. I than took all the seeds out of the cell (150 of them) and planted them all in one tray and placed it in the freezer for 2 weeks, then under grow lights for 2 weeks, then freezer, then grow lights, then freezer then grow lights. I ended up with around 65 rose seedling in the end. I used the dirt they were planted in when I transplanted them so if the rest decide to grow they can.
To make a long story longer its best to check the net for the kind you are trying to grow and see what they have to say but you can trick mother nature.
Good luck
