I am seeking some help. My sister got me some indoor rose plants for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and despite watering them and putting them in sunlight, they are not doing so well. The white roses especially are browning, dry and drooping. I’ve managed to keep my other house plants alive with a healthy dose of neglect. They get the occasional watering when I remember, which generally goes something like “whoops, haven’t watered them in a month or so. Better get on it”. If I’m feeling particularly green-fingered, I also remove the dead leaves…
I think the roses might need a bit more tlc, except I haven’t got a clue what to do. So if any of you are at all green-fingered, please help! Should I water them more? Am I watering them too much? What food do they need? Why are the red ones doing ok but the others aren’t? And what on earth does dead-heading mean?!
On the same note, my friend got my son a young oak for his Christening. I put it outside on the advice of someone but it too is looking a bit grim. I’m hoping that the leaves are brown cause it’s still technically winter… Is it salvageable or should I just buy another one and pretend that her one is flourishing?!
Thanks in advance for any tips!
