Rose Garden Maintenance Begins

DULUTH, Minn. – City crews were out at Leif Erikson Park in the Rose Garden this afternoon getting rid of leaves they put on the roses last fall.

Roses are not the most hearty plants so they need the bags of leaves for insulation during the colder months.

Workers say, this is the time people should think about doing gardening work.

“We’ve seen a few plants that are starting to emerge that were protected. So the ground is thawed underneath here. I think the frost, overall because we had the early snow in the fall there… the frost is not very deep,” Parks Leader Worker, Robert Dunsmore says.

The next step is raising the roses which should be competed in the next week or so.
