Thank you both so much for your replies.I thinkI will get a metal stake and put three tree ties around the stem as it grows back.I will get a stake that comes up to 5 feet.  It will bea bit shorter because I will pushh it into the ground quite a way. I have tried bamboo canes in the past but they were just pulled up as the roses grew. Thank you both again.

My roses have now been radically pruned after collapsing last yearin the high winds. They need staking / supporting and I am determined to sort thisout this year - very disappointed to have to prune them back so hard. Which supports do I use? The roses are less than a foot tall now but will grow again to over five feet tall. Do I use individual stakes with tree type ties in three places on the stems, or hoop style supports so that the roses lean on them - and what height hoops would I need if I choose hoops? Thank you for any advice that you can give.
