Mini Roses in Containers Still Have Leaves...A Problem?
Is it usual for mini roses grown in containers to still have lots of green leaves? My other roses, all grown in ground, are leafless, but I suspect that my minis, grown in containers on the south side of my house, are not getting cold enough to drop their leaves. Is this a problem, do you think?
For what it's worth, this will be my second and last season keeping mini roses in pots...the watering needs in summer are too much for me to keep up with, so when spring arrives into the garden they will go! I was planning on having them be dormant at the time of their transplanting, however, and so far they seem far from it! I wonder if I should pick the leaves off to force them to go dormant?
Thanks for your help!
