Wintering Roses - How to...
How does one prepare roses for winter up here? I have 3 rose shrubs (I think). One was planted early summer and
the last two were planted only a couple weeks ago. All are doing well. I have read that I should stop pruning now to avoid any tender new growth. But I have also read that I should cut the largest down to about only 6-8 inches above the ground. If I keep doing that how will it ever become as big as it should (4ft x 4ft)? How high do I pile the mulch (leaves) and when should I do it? And when in the spring should I remove the leaves?
