The Q&A Archives: Wintering A Tree Rose

Question: I have read many responses to this topic. I have a new tree rose and am unclear what you mean by "buryng the whole plant" to winter it. Does this include the top or just the stem up to the top?

Answer: Because of their height, tree roses need protection because of their exposure to wind and cold. Dig only one side of the tree roses? roots so that it can lie down on its side. Secure it in place with stakes and cover the entire plant with soil and mulch. Or, dig up tree roses and store them in a cool garage or basement. I hope this clarifies it!
