Winter Bones

Posted on

You only have to look out of the window to realise that summer sadly is finally over and we are starting to put our roses to bed! They are being cut down to stop wind damage and then having a good covering of compost put around their roots before the polytunnels are removed and the roses are open to the elements for the winter. If it is anything like last winter they will carry on growing and barely lose their leaves but from an agronomy point of view we rather hope we might get a bit of cold to give them a period of complete rest and knock any unwanteds on the head! There may appear to be a period of inactivity but nothing ever stops in nature!
