Great info and advice. I have many roses in my garden pushing the zone. In addition to winter protection, the one thing that is so important is fall watering. If the ground is not frozen, you still need to make sure your roses are watered. Fall watering increases the winter survival rate immensely.

thank you Joannnabanana
I watched carefully this year for some fall rains, and we did well, so now we
have some snow cover, and are expecting some blizzard this week coupled
with rain and sleet. Sounds good to me.

Do you get your roses from pickering and palantine? It costs so much to
ship and I never have enough money to get the three rose minimum.

oh well, I keep plugging away!

I wonder if you live near Pickering or Palantine, would you buy me a rose
or two, I can pay you for shipping and rose?
Just and idea, and then you can stuff it into a postal box.

I have ordered from Pickerings mostly. Hortico is terrible. I have also bought a number of roses from the Calgary Rose Society spring sale. They get them from Adamson Nurseries in British Columbia. I have not ordered from Palantine, but I know many of the Calgary Rose society members do...might have to check them out for next spring.

I am very far from Pickerings & Palantine. They are in Southern Ontario, near Buffalo NY. I'm north of Great Falls Montana

Oh! So you can't run over to the nursery when you got the itch, eh? LOL. Sorry for that.

We don't have any rose nursery here. The only one went out of business two years
ago and they offered a rose sale, which we all took part in. I got some nice roses at
that time. I got a Hawkeye Belle, a Morden blush, a Moonstone (got that from Heirloom).
Don't know yet what is going to make it.

We are having blizzards yesterday and today. Hubby let out horses today for the
first time, they need to walk a bit so they don't stiffen up.

I have heard that Hortico is difficult. I will try so hard to order some roses from pickerings
this year.
Keep your shovels waxed.(snow slides off them quick)
