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.
