QUESTION: I live in MN and have a beautiful, healthy Abraham Darby rose.
How do you over winter this rose in our climate?
Buried - heavily covered???
Thanks for your help. It is gorgeous!
ANSWER: Hi Carole! Yes Abraham Darby rose is very beautiful, I have one myself.
You are smart to plan winterizing this English rose by David Austin, one of the first roses to bloom in my garden.
Abraham Darby is hardy to Zone 6, and MN is most likely Zone 3.
So you need to provide very good winter covering for it.
Here is my page for winterizing roses.
Follow the directions and your Abraham darby rose will survive the Minnesita winters.
