The author provides guidelines on winterizing rose bushes. In the Southern states, growers cover the bud union with a 12-inch mound of clean topsoil and soil erosion is prevented during the winter months by adding a 4-inch layer of pine needles. He advises against hastily applying winter protection and suggests allowing the bushes to harden off. Other tips include inspecting the rose bushes closely and removing any diseased leaves or non-productive growth.
