I am a beginner Gardener, trying to get the hands dirty for the first time, so pardon my ignorance.
One of my roses was in the shade of a Magnolia tree and had a stunted growth (for a 8 yr old plant) and had not had a single bloom. Well, I transplanted the stunted rose bush into a pot on my back patio with full sun and will water it regularly(it was sprinkler fed in the front yard).
When do I prune it (it is a rounded ball of twigs instead of some V shaped branches), it will have it's first pruning - Now or wait till it is established ? or some now and some later ?
My other adjoining roses in the same front yard bed, have had yellow leaves, black spot disease and are being treated , do I preventively treat this rose too. ? although I do not see any apparent diseases( I dont know how this got lucky, I guess there is God after all)
Please ask any other information, thanks a lot in advance for any and all advice
