Minus 11 and Minus 15 Tonight & Tomorrow!

15 years ago

Well, we're getting the Siberian Express winter blast for the next two days. The high today is 19 degrees and it's downhill from here; tomorrow's high is minus 2, going down to minus 11 at night. We won't recover until Friday sometime, and then it will be in the 30s for next week. I don't believe it's been this cold since the winter of 1989.

So what can I expect come Spring? I wasn't growing roses 20 years ago, so I'm worried about what I'll find (or won't) in April. I did plant deeply bud unions 6" deep last year, including own-root, but still.....

So what's been your experience with loss when temperatures have gotten this low?
