Working around Rose Bushes-safely!

Getting ready to mulch around roses, or maybe trimming them or weeding? Tired of getting poked, scratched and your clothes hung up on them? I have a simple, and inexpensive solution, get a cardboard posterboard from the dollar store, the 24x36 size is best.
Wrap it around the pricklies annd tape at top, staple, then turn the card board wrap around as you mosve! The ouches stay inside the cardboard wrap and you remain snag free! Works well with other prickly plants as well, like cactus.
