this is one of my favourite roses, Yours Always.
We had -1C this morning, winter is just around the corner.
But we don't get too much colder than that, perhaps down to -5C overnight low & seldom see snow.
A few years back we had a severe cold snap & it went down to -7C & stayed that cold for a while, froze at least a third of water pipes in the city & in rural areas & further south there was deep snow for weeks.
