I'm new to growing roses. My daughter bought me a rose bush for Mothers Day and my husband planted it last week when I was out of town. He said he followed the instructions on the plant when he put it in the ground.
It's been in the ground a week now and the bottom leaves are beginning to turn yellow. It seems to have started on the very bottom leaves and is progressing upwards.
What are we doing wrong? Too much water? Not enough? And how much IS enough? Should I be fertilizing it or will that just stress it out more? Should he have amended the soil with manure? (read that somewhere this morning)
HELP ! It would break my heart to lose this plant !
