Is my Rose Bush Savable????
I bought a bare root plant from Home Depot. To be specific, it's a Climbing Blaze. I've noticed some black on the canes. At first I cut them back to about an inch or so below the discoloration. Now, it's come back (or just never went away).
Based on the pics below, is this plant still savable? If not, I'll just get a potted rose bush at a local nursery. I purchased a Cecille Brunner climber and from a local organic nursery and it's growing beautifully (could be because it was more established? Not sure.)
If I pull the plant and replant it with a new one, are there any steps I should take to prevent the same from happening to the new plant?
(I know I've been posting prolifically on these forums, but I really need advice/suggestions.)
