Gardening tip of the month: Make sure that the canes of your climbing roses and other vining plants are securely fastened to their supports. Winter winds can whip and severely damage unprotected plants. Don’t tie them so tightly that the string or twist-tie cuts into the stem. Old nylon stockings are excellent to use because they will stretch as the plant grows, rather than cutting into the stem.— Janice King, reporter
