HELP save my newly rooted roses planted directly in ground
Hi all the rose experts out there!
I am a newbie.MY rose cuttings planted in open ground put out their roots a month back. I had planted them directly in the garden on a steep hilly-slope. They are thriving and doing very well currently.
But from tommorrow onwards the temperature is going to dip down in late 20s at night. I am very much concerned about protecting my newly rooted baby roses. I just do not want to lose them. There is a whole lot variety out there.
I just cannot bring the whole lot indoors. There is no light in my garage; and basement though unheated also remains very very dark.Plus I have a lot of other plants that I had to bring in the house.
I need IMMEDIATE help in acquiring the information about how to care for these babies.They maybe about 6" tall. Do I cut back the growth and pile dirt around them and then mulch them with pine needles? Or do I bury them? I have no idea at all as what to do. I would appreciate all the help I can lay my hands upon.
Thanks in advance,
