How do I keep these seedlings alive????
I am not a mini rose grower, every one I have planted has died except for this one which was my first. No name or type known. I planted it a barrel many years ago and it has done just fine except for aphids. I planted a mint in the barrel with it and haven't seen an aphid since. Last fall I pruned it back and threw the trimmings in the compost. This spring my husband found two small rose plants in the compost and potted them up for me. They have been growing in a 2 in pot since on my deck. Question is, should I bring them inside for the winter or leave them on the deck. I would pot them in a larger pot before that I think, but I do not want to lose these little plants. How should I treat them over the winter?? I really, really, really want to keep these plants alive.
