I am new to gardening. I planted 6 new mini rose bushes in my front yard. followed directions on planting and feeding. Now, my bushes have yellow and brown leaves and seem to have slowed growing(this may be to my own impatients). I am not sure what is wrong and what to do about it. thanks for any of your help.

Could be transplant shock or over watering. Many times yellow leaves mean to much water. Give them time to settle in.

RE: mini rose bushes with yellow/brown leaves

Could be that they needed to be hardened off. They were grown in a greenhouse, and need time to get used to being outside in direct sunlight. In the future, before you plant them, gradually expose them to sunlight over a week or two. You can tell pretty quickly if the leaves are starting to burn.

If the canes are still green, they should be fine.
