Default grass clippings

Hi, I wonder if any one knows if you can put your grass clippings and
mulched up leaves around the roses. Can they be right up to the base of the
rose or do you need to keep it away from the base. I like to use my grass
clippings for mulch. Thanks for any responses.

I don't have a professional opinion, however I have heard that
composting material consumes nitrogen. I'd compost it for use
later in the summer.
