I have 2 unrelated questions: 1) Pottisporum (Mock Orange) - I have 3 of these lovely plants that have been in pots for 3 years. They have gradually lightened to a very light green...almost a yellowish color and never flowered. I realized they needed to be planted in the ground or repotted, or are lacking in some nutrient (possibly iron?) I did transplant them this spring and for the first time they flowered. I planted 2 in larger pots and one in the ground. They all seem much healthier, however they are still light green in color verses the darker green color in the nurseries around town. What do you think they need? I did put a little soil sulpher in the bed and also in the new potting soil, and am hoping that will encourage a deeper darker leaf. They are flowering beautifully however. Any suggestions? They smell great! 2) Roses- I would like some opinions on whether it is better to cut your roses after they bloom and stick them in a pretty vase or to just let them die on the stem? Which is healthier for the plant and/or encourages more blooms? They are extrememly healthy and seem to bloom in cycles. I've heard that's very normal. Also, if you do cut them back, I have heard that you should cut them down to the first 5 leaf branch. True or false? Any thoughts, suggestions, or solid answers from an expert would be welcomed.
