You asked, we listened — we made our Rosy Cozy taller and wider. It’s the best way to protect tender roses from extreme cold and temperature fluctuations. Simply place the wire cage over a pruned-back plant and add insulating material, such as bark mulch. Slip on the white tarpaulin cover and place bricks or stones in the stirrups to anchor it. You have reliable — and reusable — rose protection that is so much better than those one-season foam rose cones that blow away, crumble and suffocate plants. Install the Rosy Cozy after the first hard frost.
We designed the Rosy Cozy as an effective solution to the problems posed by styrofoam rose cones:
The reflective white cover prevents heat build-up, and the mesh top allows heat and moisture to escape, reducing the chance of the plant breaking dormancy too early. (Styrofoam rose cones hold in too much heat and moisture.)
Two stirrups at the Rosy Cozy's base let you anchor it with bricks or rocks, securing it in place. (Styrofoam rose cones blow away in a strong breeze.)
The Rosy Cozy's durable steel frame and heavy-duty vinyl cover will protect rose canes from breaking under heavy snow, and it will last for many years of use. (Styrofoam rose cones are brittle and disintegrate after one season.)
