Hi Chip [wavey]

I'm right on the edge of 8b & 9. I cut my roses down to about 10-12 inches every year,usually in Jan-Feb. Since we have such a long growing period,I wait till it's the coldest it's gonna get,before trimming.

As far as bulbs go,I put them in at all times of the year. They stay in the ground year-round too. Whenever I pick up new bulbs,I put them in as soon as I get home [thumb]

Hope this helps you some!

By the way....Welcome to the Forum!
