Q.I’ve pruned my rose bushes, and am now facing freezing weather next week for about 4 days. Should I cover the bushes?

The ground is not frozen, and probably won’t freeze, but it will be from 5 to 18-degrees overnight. Will it affect the newly cut stems or the overall bushes?

Having just pruned them, they should be okay. However covering them would give an extra degree of protection.
