Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the roots to keep them nice and cool. Then, pull it back away from directly touching the canes. Feed Doris Day® Roses specialty Rose fertilizer. Check the application rates and timing on the label.
In the fall, please bag and remove all leaf litter. Overwinter in cold zones with a mound of mulch applied in late November. Wait until early spring to prune each of the Rose canes down to 6 – 8 inches. Cut at a 45-degree angle just above a nice, fat bud and remove the winter mulch from the crown.
