Buds on a cutting.
I have a cutting I rooted last year from my neighbors yard. I believe it's a HT. It over wintered in a 10" pot and survived just fine, desp[ite our horrible winter season. It's put on some good growth this season, it threw up a couple little cane's well over a foot. It stopped growing for a couple of months, and I repotted it about 2 weeks ago into a 12" pot. It has since put out some new growth as well as some buds. Should I pinch the buds to encourage more root strength or does it sound like the plant is mature enough to bloom?
Another member posted a message in another rose forum, and rather than steal their thunder I decided to ask here.
Thanks in advance
