Yes, I have budding rose bushes in January…in Indiana. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. It was a few days ago and they are still alive. They probably won’t make it past the weekend though. We’re expecting single digit high temps and below zero lows. We’ve had some really warm weather and some pretty cold, but this will be the coldest this year by far. I really don’t like cold, so I should get a lot done inside next week. I bet the roses will be wishing they were inside too. Here they are today:
These are several different plants from my yard, so it’s not just one that may be in a protected area. They are in different areas and all are leafing out.
This isn’t the first time this has happened, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it in January.
Does anyone else have plants budding when they should be sleeping? I would love to know if it’s due to the unusually warm weather or if I’m just a phenomenal gardener!
