How should I get my roses ready for the winter?

Preparing for the winter is key for survival.

I would water them well going into winter. Also, protect it from the cold. Most plants that die during the winter months do so because they have dry roots that freeze. University of Illinois Extension has a great guide on preparing roses for winter and using a rose cone, chicken wire with leaves, and mounding soil for winter protection. I hope this helps.

Thanks for writing!
