Re: It's finally cooled off

Thanks for the information on overwintering potted roses, Kitty.  I wonder 
why they 
specify removing all the foliage?  I don't think I could manage digging 
enough of a
trench to bury these plants several inches deep.  I will probably try the 
plastic bag
idea, but there is no way I can guarantee they won't get colder than 20 
degrees.  I
may just have to treat them as annuals and replace them next year - though the
one I overwintered in its pot last year has done splendidly this year.

I wonder if removal from pot to heel in late in the season would disturb
the roots too much at a time when they wouldn't have had enough time to
acclimate to the new location. Sinking the pot - no disruption to the
roots, might be better. Ornamental pots that contain the nursery
container the shrub is planted in could be easily removed without
bothering the roots.
