When it comes to roses, autumn is the best time to plant new rose bushes. So that new plants have time to become rooted before winter comes and low temperatures freeze the earth, and then in spring to start growing. The old rose bushes, as new ones, need to be prepared for winter in a few simple steps.

It is believed that roses should not be cut in the autumn because the twigs which are cut may not regenerate before the winter comes with frost and low temperatures, and a rose bush may simply dry and damage. However, it is required to cut off the dry flowers, twigs, damaged parts of the bush or unwanted twigs.

As far as the fertilization is concerned, rose bushes should be fertilized preferably in September, however, it may be done till the end of October. The autumn fertilizer contains potassium and phosphorus, so that after the fertilization the twigs of roses become more firm and resistant to the damages caused by low temperature.

The important aspect while protecting the roses is of course the physical frost protection. One of the methods is to make a mound out of soil on the height of 20-30cm also covered with twigs and tree bark or moss. Some gardeners cover the bushes with paper boxes, straw or special non-woven fabric to keep the roses warm and safe.

Roses protected in such a way may successfully make it through the winter frosts.
