We just planted an "America" rose bush in a spot that gets a lot of shade and some dappled sun. It bloomed this week for the first time, which was exciting ... but now we've noticed the lower leaves are turning yellow and brown.
We've been watering it frequently, using Miracle Gro about once a week. We've had a dry spell so thought it best to water frequently.
Anyone have thoughts on what could be causing the lower leaves to die? A soil deficiency or too much water or ...?
