  • acute every Bush with a bucket of compost or garden soil;
  • over trimmed (to 40 cm) stems roses, put the arc, throw to the ground tight spunbond (density 60), and top — polyethylene. If you have the opportunity to come in late autumn and winter at the cottage — adjust «prospirits», raising and lowering the film as fluctuations in temperature. Cold — polyethylene drop to the ground, the thaw film fixed only in the form of a «roof» so that melted snow from dripping inside the shelter.
