I live on the outskirts of Dallas, Texas and for the last two nights the local weather people have been calling for a low of 38 degrees and advising that plants should be taken indoors to protect them from frost.
That was the reason for my first question. I just could not understand their reasoning for such advice.
Now for another question. In the last two weeks I have planted a number of bare-root roses. So far there has not been any frost in my area and my roses are doing great.
However, in the event there is a frost sometime in the near future, I would like to know how long a rose brush can withstand frost on it before severe damage is done to it.
