Question of the Week 01/02/2020
Q: My roses are leafing out in the winter! Is this going to cause problems in the spring?
A: When we have warm winters or several days of warm weather, the roses can get confused and start leafing out. The next freezing cold temperatures that pass through WILL freeze and damage the leaves, resulting in them falling off.
This is normal for New Mexico. In the spring, the rose will produce a new set of leaves so there is nothing to worry about!
