Giant Rose Bush Has Fallen

Category Flowers
Rose bushes and trees should be pruned annually to maintain their shape and generate new blooms for the next year. However, too many heavy blooms can cause them to list or even fall over. If your giant rose bush has fallen you may need to prop it up until it is time to prune it back.

Our 25 year old weeping "new Dawn" Rose has fallen. It is in full bloom, and I guess the weight of the blooms and beautiful rain we've had was too much for it. I would hate to lose it. My husband has tried 3 times to winch it upright, but it starts to corkscrew as it lifts, it's roots are still in the ground. Do you have any suggestions we could try? Thank you for taking my question.

As a rule, we gardeners are a nice lot and enjoy helping others with their gardening chores. This looks like a task for 2-3 people. I'm sure someone would be more than glad to help.


Now is not a good time to cut down or heavily prune this massive rose. If you get it upright till early Spring (at the very first sign of leaf buds forming), then might be a good time to give this beauty a good pruning.

Thank you for your reply. It is the beginning of summer here in Billywillinga Australia. We think we will let the Rose bloom and prune it hard when it stops in autumn then try again. The roots are still in the ground and the trunk has corkscrewed when it fell. Thank you again. Gwen

You can cut the tree down and it will regrow from the stump.

Because it is a weeping Rose that has been grafted we can't cut the trunk. Thank you for your reply. Gwen
