Uncovering roses in spring is among the first things you should do in the garden. During winter, the cover protected your garden roses from freezing, but now it’s time to take the coat off. In some areas with very cold winters, the rose cover protects even grafts, not only roots. Winter can be disastrous for roses if they are not properly protected.
Rose caring tips
- Once the temperatures begin to rise in thermometers, it means that roses will come out of their vegetative rest. This means the middle of March, but it really depends on the outdoor temperatures. In case if there is any risk for the temperature to drop below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, you better won’t uncover the roses.
- Another important aspect is soil moisture. Never uncover roses when the soil is very wet. You may risk in paving the soil around the rose bush which is not very good for plants.
