Minature rose in a container problems?

A friend gave me some miniature rose as a gift. Since it was given to me in the winter, I overwinter it in the container. Toward spring, it was looking not so good. I thought it was because it was root bounded.

I decided to planted in a much larger container outside. I pulled it out of the old pot and it was really root bounded. I cut the roots and potted them in some potting mix. I added some slow release fertilizer and planted them in a sunny spot outside.

I notice that the leave are starting to turn yellow. I am trying to figure out what's wrong. Too much water?

The rose forum on GW is very active and they are friendly to newbies. I am growing roses in containers thanks to great advice I got there. I suggest you ask them.
