Hello all, anybody know what's up with my rose?

The lower leaves are yellowing. imageimage

The rest of the plant is healthy, as I only bought it this year and potted it up and fed it I am hoping it's just that the lower leaves aren't getting enough sun but not sure

    It's just one leaf showing signs of age rather than sickness or malnutrition as the rest of the plant is healthy.  Snip it off and bin it - not on the compost heap - and keep an eye on the rest, just in case.    Keep it moist, but not drowning, until late autumn now and it should carry on flowering till the frosts but leaves will start to fall.

    Don't feed it now till next spring and, if you can, put it somewhere sunny but sheltered from heavy frosts and winds for the winter.

    I think it's in great shape. I'd not worry about it. 

  • Thanks all, much appreciated
