Is it time to uncover the roses?

I know that when the forsythia bloom is the best time to uncover the roses. I see them just starting, should I wait a little longer? I just can't wait, especially since this week-end is supposed to be nice, it is the perfect time but I don't want to rush it either.

RE: Is it time to uncover the roses?

On April 5, I asked about the same question on the Upstate forum, but I got so impatient that I went out on Thursday 4/7 and just did it: uncovered, pruned and fertilized with Rosetone. Everyone is doing fine, even after a couple of nights hovering around the freezing mark. "Ya gotta believe!"

RE: Is it time to uncover the roses?

Forsythia not blooming here yet but I did uncover and have been doing a bit of pruning and fertilizing. There is going to be hard freeze tonight but the roses should be OK. I suspect Endless Summer is going to freeze back but those are the breaks.

RE: Is it time to uncover the roses?

Thanks for the advice. I didn't hear about the hard freeze tonight but I am going to go for it on Sunday. Wish me luck!
