I bought about 25 rose bushes this year...not a bad start... :*) and I need some advice, if anyone can help.
Some I bought at Walmart, and they are leafing out and I have great expectations. 4 or 5 others I bought a week later at the same store when they were down to $2 and none of them are doing anything...my question is, when do I give up and shovel prune??? Some still have green canes, which I guess means they still have hope, but what about those that have only a splotch of green or are brown? I know black is bad... and I have gotten rid of 2 :*( that were definately dead...crispy critters...but how long is too long???????? If there is just a hint of green should I wait????
I mean, is there a point of no return???
I have since bought more plants at grden centers that have leaves etc. and so that has placated me somewhat...I even got a Therese Bugnot for $5 !!! I am very excited about her...Any one have one?????? What is your experience????
And I got "one" poulsen mini rose at target, and noticed after a week that there were 3 different flowers on it, so I investigated and there were 6 different plants in the pot!!!
I am SO-O-O-O-O-O glad to have found this forum...quite by accident, but the "other " forum all they do is fight...
There were 58 postings on one rose topic and I thought there would be blooshed!!!
Thanks in advance for any input...
