just got a mini rose - Nov 10 -what now??
Just was given a lovely lavender color mini rose. It is in bloom with many buds yet to open. I am a gardener, but never had roses. Not sure what to do at this time of year.
We are past first frost, the ground is not yet frozen hard, but very cold weather is just 3 days away.
Here are my choices:
1. keep it inside where we can enjoy it while it's blooming.
2. take it to the basement - probably 45-50 degrees and fairly dark without lights on.
3. Plant it out and hope for the best.
Welcome advice from rose experts. Thanks
