crowns of plants, rose, help!
Hi all. I have a question regarding my Kaitlin Ainsley rose that I was so certain was dead. It came up with a couple stem sprouts with leaves today. The old stems are still dead.
After reviewing the plant, I realized I might have buried it too deep last year!!! If I covered the crown, that might have "killed" it off?
So, now that I know it is alive, should I raise it up a bit or leave it to make its own, new crown with the new stems?
It seems to be the only downward sloping part of the bed so I wouldn't mind raising it a bit.
Or, should I just leave it alone, let it come back to life and wait until next year to move it about?
Funny how two years of horticulture courses and an entire lifetime of planting and gardening could leave me completely unaware that covering the crown could kill a plant!! I guess it is a good thing that I never covered a crown before!
(sorry the photos are so gigantic!!)
