So I just noticed this on my rose sprouts.

Is this some kind of disease or virus? Should I pull them before it spreads? In some case it looks benign, in others it looks like it could be malignant.

Thank you

They look fine to me. These are teeny tiny babies. Give them a chance to mature a little and get some size. These first early leaves will drop off once the plant gets established. Relax!

Lol I thought my baby roses got black spot!

I was like, "NOOOoooo!"

It's hard to learn to accept yellow leaves and leaf drops. Gotta "roll with the punches," as they say. "When in Rome," right?

I can't relax! I'm gardening!
Lol. I know I had more hair last summer. I don't know how therapists can recommend gardening as a therapeutic activity or treatment!

Happy gardening! *wink wink*

Plants have been growing for thousands of years without man's help. Roses are incredible survivors in the plant world. There are hundreds of roses that grow unattended all over the world in old abandoned fields and cemeteries. They come back year after year and some of them have been doing so for more than a hundred years. No one prunes them or waters them or feeds them. They just survive! Most plants do. They're genetically programmed to survive. Unless you are really pushing zones or have extreme weather problems they will take care of themselves pretty well. Stop worrying so much and learn to just enjoy them. The plants will thank you!
