winter care of roses
I'm wondering what others do about roses in winter. A friend wraps hers in burlap but still looses some over the winter. I had read burlap is not a good idea anyway and I prefer to do as little as possible. Another friend suggested putting leaves around the base to mulch and I've heard some say the dirt should be hilled up around the base. I also heard mulch shouldn't be applied until after the ground freezes because of rodents.
