Question: 414-3410
My potted miniature rose has yellow leaves. I watered regularly this winter. What is wrong? Betty, West Point, NY

Mort's Answer:
Your plant could have root rot from excessive watering. Remove the pot from the soil and check for brownmushy roots. Cut them out and repot in a clay pot with a soil mix of 1/3 coarse sand. Your rose needs a rest every winter. Water only when soil is dry.
