Protect Your Roses When Winter Winds Blow

  • After the ground has frozen in the fall:
  • For each rose plant form a 6 to 8 inch mound of fresh, loose soil or compost around the base.
  • In the spring when you observe the beginnings of new growth, carefully remove the soil mounds.
  • At this time you should also cut back your rose plants.
  •  Remove all but the 3 strongest canes and then cut those back to 18 inches.

November 2018 Tips

  • Finish all fall clean-up chores and especially leaf raking, as it helps against bugs and diseases. 
  • Cut Asparagus fronds after the frost, as they may harbor pests. Adding lime is good this time of year for these. 
  • Put several inches of mulch over Parsnips, Garlic, Shallots and Strawberries 
  • Sharpen and oil those tools for spring 
  • Christmas Cactus need even amounts of darkness and light until their buds form. They also love consistently cool temperatures.
