Windy rose bed

Post by snowlis » Thu, 04 Oct 2012 05:07:50



My rosebed is in it's second summer and I have a selection of hybrid
teas and floribundas. My problem is that although we have a walled in
Garden we still experience strong wind and my poor roses have been
battered this year with stems snapping and others being blown over. Can
I stake them and if so what is the best way?

Build up a wire cage around the rose plant. Set up wind screens and wind
protectros prior to a wind storm is the best prevention.  You can even
add clean straw around the plant inside the covered wire cage.

If blown over, it may because they were top-heavy.  You can try to
replant, but you really have to cut them back, as the roots have been
damaged.  I've lost a few that way.   I staked mine with very heavy
iron rods until the roots were established.

I've pruned mine heavily in the winter ever since, as we get strong
storms in the spring.

you may use green colored curtain for protecting the roses from the
blowing wind..
