Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb for How to treat roses for the Winter season. Well, typically we're not going to push a lot of fertilizer during the Winter season, and we're going to make sure that most of our cuttings, of course, will be taken to reduce the plant if needed, which we might also think about covering a rose. If we have a severe freeze, you're going to need to make sure that your cover goes all the way over and to the ground. Now, this isn't probably needed unless you're going down into single numbers. Roses typically will take to freezing without a problem, but if you are starting to go down way below freezing in your area, you might check your local map for just how cold you typically get, you might want to have a cover that you can have that you'll go over the rose, all the way to the ground, and make sure that you put some type of a stone or a brick or something around it to hold that cover all the way to the ground, and make sure that you are saving that radiant energy. For, I'm Stan DeFreitas.
