This winter seems to be particularly mild so far, so it’s important to give special care to roses. Right now, many roses are still producing flower buds. For long-term rose plant health, they need to experience dormancy before the next growing season. It’s January, and for a plant, Spring is fast-approaching.
It’s important that roses go through their dormancy phase before next Spring. Since we can’t control the weather, what can we do about it? We can signal to the plants to force dormancy.
