I've moved pots into a sheltered corner and made sure garden furniture can't blow over and damage plants. We're going to be away for the weekend, so the lid of the growhouse is wedged so that the plants get plenty of air but hopefully a strong wind won't blow the lid off . I've not cut my roses back as our garden is quite sheltered, but if your roses are particularly exposed it might be an idea to reduce their height a bit to avoid windrock - what do others think?
If I had climbing or rambling roses on the house or on fences I'd make sure they are well tied in to prevent them whipping about and causing damage or even a danger to anyone passing by.
