The New Year 2021 has come, the days are lengthening the sun is now shown more often. Yesterday I went to look at my garden. Snow lay on the lawn on the patio on the frozen pond. The greenhouse was also frozen.
I decided to check how my roses have been surviving under the cover.
I opened the plastic and was surprised - there were blossoming buds on one rose near the tall thuja. This thuja grows North to the rose bush and protects it well from the frosty wind.
The pine-nivaki winters well and is not at all afraid of the cold. Roots of the pine-nivaki are not deep and rather short, but this does not affect its hardiness.
The appearance of these roses upset me.
They have had frozen leaves and frozen stems. Even one frozen bud. Poor things! Not sure if they'll be alive in the spring. I think I should have removed the leaves from them in the fall.
I also wanted to see how my rhododendrons have hibernated so far. Last winter I came to the conclusion that there was no need to cover them.
So last fall, I just pulled their branches a little closer to the main trunk so that the bush would not be broken by snow.
How are your plants outside or inside? Is the winter cold or wet in your place?
I heartfelt wish you a Happy New Year, may it brings you and your loved ones joy and health.
