Hi Thomas, if you are growingHi Thomas, if you are growing hardy roses, by now you should have stopped fertilizing and pruning in order to promote dormancy in the plants. Wait until after a couple of hard frosts (and most of the leaves drop) to provide winter protection. We recommend hilling up organic mulch or compost about 10 inches around the plant. If you have tender roses, they'll need to be moved indoors and stored between 34 and 40 degrees, in a dark basement or attic. Good luck!
