For a number of years I have been growing hybrid teas, floribundas, miniatures and of course hardy shrubs. Mid October to mid November is the time to put the roses to bed for the winter.

Great and easy to follow direction for those that live in really cold winter areas. Love the photos showing what it looks like to protect them. Thumbs up

Yes, thank you for the timely article.
I only grow hardy ones, but have added some new ones so will mound them.
I have been stock piling peat moss!

Missed my opportunity to get the roses in the veggie garden this year. (too busy at work Sad ) I am going to see if they will survive in the pots inside my greenhouse (unheated). I think it's worth a try.
