Who's gottem?
How do you over winter your roses?
Looking for an alternative to what my better 1/2 does.

She uses a flake or 2 of straw, to cover the base of the untrimmed plant.
This year Im putting down new red mulch/wood chips.
Ya never get all the yellow straw out of the mulch in the spring.

Thanks much...notnew...


Thanks to all US military veterans.

Trim the long stems that are getting in my way and do nothing. Trim the dead stuff in the spring.

You need to prune roses every winter. Otherwise they are susceptible to disease and uncontrolled unhealthy growth.

and I could not understand what made my roses sick after last winter ... and it had to be cut off simply. I will know now, thanks.


My mom has her own garden, and she has been caring for it almost since she was a child. Naturally, I also loved gardening, but I am just starting to learn how to properly care for plants.
