I got this beautiful red miniature rose bush, i want to plant it outside, the label says to cut it back to 3"-4", then plant it. can this be right? it still has flowers on it. when i do cut it, is it the same as regular roses....above a 5 leaf cluster. theres no mention of where the cuts should be....
Thanks, Linda

I didn't cut mine back when I lived in washington state and transplanted them outside. They did just fine. But that might have been beginners luck cause I certainly didn't and still don't know what I was doing.

That's a really cool link thanks Mike. Makes me want to try them again this year indoors. Although I have lost all the ones I have tried to keep indoors so far. Maybe this time? I am such a sucker for a pretty plant.

I planted my minis about a month ago, didn't cut them back, and they're all doing just fine. They're blooming like crazy! I put them as a front in the rose bed, and it looks pretty nice! [thumb] [wayey]
