Roses have come up from seed!

This is the first time I've had success with this! I planted seeds from Party Girl and one other that I didn't label, and that was about 2 months ago, when it was still warm. We've had rain and cold weather recently, and I forgot about these. Just now I was outside and glanced at the container as I walked past, and there are 4 baby roses in them! One has been up for a while and is quite a bit larger, the other 3 look like they have just sprouted, and maybe more will come up. They are in a spot that gets dappled sun. Is there anything else I need to be doing now?

Congratulations! Just keep them watered but not soaking wet and they should do fine. When they get two or three sets of leaves you can very carefully transplant them into separate small pots and start to move them out into full sun. Don't put them into too big of a pot too soon. That seems to slow them down. You can also give them a little diluted fertilizer, like half strength, once you pot them up. Be sure to post some pictures when they bloom!

Seil, thanks! They'll have to be transplanted for sure, the container they're in is too shallow. At what age do they usually start blooming? I can't wait!

It depends on the rose. I've had some of my seedlings bloom in about 8 to 10 weeks from germination. Some others took as long as 2 years before they bloomed but those are usually from once blooming roses. Party Girl is a repeating mini and you should get blooms fairly quickly on them.
