Does anyone know of suppliers of micro mini roses in the UK/EU? I only want a few plants, so ordering from the US or Canada is probably impossibly expensive!

I planted two miniature roses outside this Spring and all the leaves fell off.  Is there a chance the bush will come back again

Are the stems still green or have any green at the base?  If so there is a chance the roses will rebound.


How long have they been leafless?

My experience and suggestion: There is a chance you planted too early? Too cold? It's a necessity on my part when I plant roses to use a rose starter. I use inexpensive B-1 that one can buy by the quart or gallon - usually 2 teaspoons added to a gallon of water - at Walmart or Orchard Supply and Hardware. I assume you prepared the soil well. I've started to use only potting soil in my beds and no compost. Have 14 large beds and over 600 miniature roses. If your plants are still green limbs the leaves will probably come back. Do apply vitamin B-1 immediately and once a week for about 3 weeks. Keep well watered until the roots take a firm hold- every-other day for the first 2 weeks. Placing my miniatures in lowered beds allows me to water a number of roses at one time to a depth of 2 inches. With good drainage roses love water. Good luck. Frank Adams mini-roses#1

I realize blue roses are rare. Are there any blue miniatures?

There currently are no true blue or black roses. The reason for this is genetic; roses lack the genetic code to produce blue or black pigment. "Blue" or "mauve" rose categories are usually of a pale, silvery pink or mauve color, but are not a true blue color.

If you have been told otherwise, your source is in error.

Assuming you consider "mauve" (the closest ARS designation to blue), 'Sweet Chariot' and 'Ruby Pendant' are two of the highest rated "mauve" miniatures. 'Sweet Chariot' has a strong damask scent while 'Ruby Pendant' can grow up to 7 feet (interesting, given that it's pollen parent is Baby Betsy McCall; one of the smallest roses).

Greetings, To my knowledge there are no Blue roses in existence. The first breeder to propagate a blue rose will gain world-wide fame and the rose will be sought after by rose lovers world-wide. I have a mini-miniature rose named "Blue Skies" 10" with (B) 3/4" that is light in color, a mauve, that is the closest thing to blue I know about. Many roses with blue in their names aren't blue, for example "Blue Girl" a full-size rose that is mauve but no where close to blue. If you do discover a blue rose let me know. Thank you. Best and Good Luck. Frank Adams Mini-roses#1
