The Q&A Archives: rose bushes

Question: I planted 2 rose bushes at the same time and they both had leaves on them. Now the leaves have fallen off but only one is starting new leaves. What did I do wrong or what can I do to help the other one?

Answer: I suspect your new roses are suffering from some transplant shock. They'll get over it as soon as the roots become established in their new homes. In the meantime be sure to water them deeply once each week. I think they'll recover soon and begin to develop healthy new leaves.

Best wishes with your new roses!
