I already made a post about my succulents, because we're moving to the snow, but now I'm asking about my mini-roses.

How should I treat them in such weather conditions (such as below freezing, major rain, etc.)?

Thanks!

When are you moving? It could make a difference for this winter. If you are potting them to move them the time of year will decide what you need to do for this winter.

In general you really don't have to treat them any different once they are established. Since most mini roses are own root plants they should be very winter hardy. You might want to plant them a little bit deeper, maybe and inch or two, than they were but that's about all you need to do.

We are moving within 1-2 months, and I want to be prepared for fall/winter, when it snows.

So we're talking late summer. Do you know the zone and first frost date for where you are moving to? If you are going to be in your new home at least 8 weeks before first frost you can plant them right in the ground and they should be OK for winter. If you are going to be close to the frost date you may need to keep them potted in an insulated but unheated garage for the winter and plant them next spring.

Thanks for the info Seil!

Also, the zone we are moving to is 5.
