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.
I wish you luck with this beautiful rose. And thank you for posting. I had never heard of a weeping rose. I researched and found that these roses are grafted twice. A straight, strong trunk is grafted to a root stock and then, a rambler, climber or similar rose is grafted to the top of the trunk.
