The Q&A Archives: hedge roses,winter protection

Question: I have some hedge roses that I ordered from Springhill nurseries. What do I need to do to protect them from the cold and the snow in the winter months?

Answer: Hedge roses are normally grown on their own rootstock (not grafted) and are among the hardiest of all roses. Since there are no grafts to protect, you won't need to do anything to help them during the winter months. In the spring, when new growth begins, you can prune out anything that shows winter damage.

Best wishes with your roses!
