Moondance Rose

There are two main reasons we should winterize our rose plants.

1) We are protecting the plant from dying
2) We are protecting the canes from damage.

Here are some tips for winterizing your favorite rose plants:

First, you must steer clear of fertilizing during the winter because if you try to encourage new growth in the winter it will only make your roses more accessible to dying from freezer burn.

Second, you should stay away from the white plastic cones when doing your winter protection because they shut in too much heat during the winter thaw.
