climbing rose

North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom Gb

I had to move a climbing rose just as its putting on new growth ( i know its wrong time of year but it had to be moved) now its drooping should i cut it right back again or leave alone? I am watering it every day.



Are you planting it next to your new arch? I've noticed several plants wilting. I think spring sun surprises them as much as it does us! I'm sure it will get going again.

I would cut it back by half. There was probably some root damage when it was moved so it's only kind to the plant to reduce the top growth as well - it should soon settle down and repair the damage
