Why are my new roses wilting?
I got some bareroot roses and upon recommendation potted them in 5 gallon pots. I placed the pots in the area where they will eventually be planted (it's not ready yet) and they were doing just great.
We had some cold nights and i was worried, but as many of you said they were fine.
We have also been having rain for about week and half, it's been really crazy. So they got watered a lot. On the days it didn't rain, i watered them.
Well, today it stopped raining and the sun came out, it wasn't very hot, but it was warmer.
Many of the potted roses, and actually some that i have in the ground elsewhere are wilting. The new growth looks weak, especially the red leaves.
What is causing this? I didn't water them today, but they were wilting since morning, and they got so much rain yesterday, i checked the soil and it was quite wet. I moved the pots around so they wouldn't be standing in the same spot and the water could drain.
Could it be the sun? It was cloudy for a while, and we had almost a full day of sun.
What should i do? water them more, less? Move them from the sun? Do nothing?
Please offer any advice, i really want them to live!
