    plentiful spinly leaves, buds and suckers

    I live in Pittsburgh. Rainy all spring. I planted 7 new Tea's bare root and all are not doing well. leaves are small and spindly and the few buds that I have are small and won't open. I have lots of suckers similar to a tomato plant. The ends of the leaves and buds are dried and darkened. I have no idea where to go

    The suckers need to be ripped out of the root stack immediately. They are sucking the life out of your grafted rose. I'm sure that all the rain didn't do your roses any good either. Is the soil well-drained. Rose roots don't like to be sitting in water.

    That's why I only grow own-root roses. They don't have that problem.
