Disneyland Roses Winter Protection Removed - March 2023
A few days ago, I yanked out the chicken-wire cages that held a heavy leaf blanket on top of our three Disneyland Roses. Those leaves were there to help insulate the crown of the roses from the harsh Winter conditions. With the warmer temperatures (and...shorter periods of sub-freezing temps) here, it was time to let the roses breath a bit. I still have to clean up all the leaf litter (see below), but for now, these Disneyland Roses are on their course for 2023.
I removed the cages around mid-March last year, so I went about a week earlier this year.
I'll start feeding these in April and then hit them every month to keep them happy.
