Shirley Thompson lives just north of Boston, MA and experiences the typical New England freeze/thaw cycles many northern climates get. She has developed a very practical solution for protecting her roses during the winter. It’s easy to do and has the bonus of adding compost and organic material to the soil come spring.
I wrote about it in my blog and you can read that post by clicking here.
But, I’ve included here photos on this page and they are pretty self-explanatory.
Shirley also sent me a great PDF document with more detail and I advise you read that to get the full picture. The link to that is below.
