Planting Roses (page 2 of 2)
by National Gardening Association Editors
After your roses become dormant in the fall, protect them from severe freezing weather by piling a mound of soil over the canes. Lay down climbing rose canes and cover them, too. Buy non-grafted or "own-root" roses if you live where temperatures drop to -20°F or colder. These roses can often grow back from their roots if their tops die from winter cold.
