Does anyone have any tips for caring for these tiny plants, especially about
removing spent blooms? I've transplanted a couple into a rectangular pottery
container and want them to prosper.
Thanks for all advice.
Luckily, there was a lady selling them at our local Fair, who kindly
helped me out, and I'll pass on her advice.
They need to be either re-potted into at least a 8" pot.
They need to be outdoors in full sun.
Water carefully..don't wet the foliage, just like full sized roses.
Most people recommend watering them from the bottom, but you can do
it from the top, carefully.
Remove spent blooms as you would from full sized roses.
Cut off dead branches with a sharp pruner.
Feed a weak solution of rose food in Spring and Fall.
They are susceptible to the same pests/diseases as full sized roses.
All I can say is the above has worked for me...all 4 of them are
doing just great!!!
