Hi All,

Yesterday I caved and bought a Boscobel from our local nursery. When I went to plant it, this little seedling was in the soil around the base. It is super tiny but seems to have its own root system. Does anyone have advice for taking care of it so that it may grow? It would be fun to see if it takes.

Until that tiny critter gets a couple more sets of leaves there is no way to even tell if it is a rose or something else.

Yes, I figure it will take some time to see if it is, but it will be fun to see. With the red stem it looks just like a few pictures or videos of rose seedlings I've seen like this one from the Santa Clarita Rose Society site:

Since I'm sowing my rose seeds for some time now, that picture has the definite characteristic shape of rose cotyledons. Ime, they take quite a lot of time to set out new leaves (real); specially at first. I would keep yours in a semishaded place but very well lit, protected from frost.
Good luck. Love to see outcome.

Watch keeping the soil to wet. Seedlings can damp off rather easily. And that's with any new seedling of any plant really.
