Your container roses should be moved into a cool garage or basement area. Place them up off the concrete floor on old pieces of lumber. Keep an eye on the soils moisture over the winter. You do not want them wet but the soils should be moist. No feeding them during this time as that can come in the Spring. I would prune them all down to about half their height so as to make them easier to deal with in moving them.
