This is my first time here, so thank you all for your hospitality.
I have a beautiful 3ft rose bush in a large pot. It was a gift and I am at my wits end trying to figure out ways to keep it alive during the winter in my home. This is my first year with this particular plant.
I have them on my rooftop outdoor deck during the spring, summer, and fall. I brought the roses inside for the winter. I have watered them and tried to put them by the sunniest spot in my apartment. I live in Chicago, so the sun during the winter is hard to get. I use the Miracle Grow rose food and I thought it was helping for a while. I pruned off all of the old leaves that were starting to fall, however now the once new leaves are turning and crisping over and falling.
I cannot lose this plant. It means so much to me. If there is any advice, I would appreciate it. I am wondering about special winter food, or maybe artificial light I could use? I will do anything to keep these beautiful roses alive.
Thank you so much for your time.
