Q: How do I prepare shrub roses for winter?
A: Shrub roses need very little winter protection. Perhaps add about 4 inches of mulch around the base and give them a last shot of fertilizer before it freezes.
Of course if they are located where real high wind will get to them you might need to deal with this.
