What to do with rose with new growth now?
I planted a Hope For Humanity rose early this spring but it did not do well initially, because of powdery mildew, attacks by bugs etc. So it never settled in for a while. Now that all the attacks are gone, the rose is sending up lots of new growth! I stopped feeding in mid July already. Now, as the temperature cools down and that winter will be here soon, all this new growth is not good!
What should I do with it now? How do I "harden" it for winter please?
