How do I prepare Moje Hammarberg rose bushes for winter?

Asked October 5, 2018, 4:46 PM EDT

I have three Moje Hammarberg rose bushes. They were just planted this spring. Do I need to cover with straw for the winter? Do I need to cut back or prune them? Thanks very much for any help you can provide. Thanks. Carol

The roses you mentioned will not need any special winter protection. It's best to prune them in early spring as soon as leaf buds appear to improve their form and remove dead or winter damaged stems.
