ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Virginia Clemens Rose Garden and its use of construction blankets to cover its rose beds during winter. To cut costs, the garden used donated and slightly used construction blankets instead of the Minnesota Tip method of winter protection. These are insulated with eight layers of &frac116;-inch "Microfoam" to prevent freezing. Aside from the lower cost of the blankets, big savings in labor cost were also realized. By using the blankets, Virginia Clemens Rose Garden lost only a few roses.
