I tried to grow roses in a container and they always die after the first year bloom. What's up?

If your roses are healthy going into winter but fail to sprout in the spring, the plants need some winter protection. Plants in containers should be insulated so the roots do not freeze solid. You can sink the containers into a garden bed or you can wrap insulation around the pots and set them in a protected area (porch, patio, deck, etc.). Next spring they should sprout right on time. Hope so!
