I'm pretty sure they need to be in soil to root...use some rooting hormone and I'll say a prayer to the rose fairy for them. Good Luck!!

I got another Garden arch today and used the root Hormone( thanks Comfrey!) and place the broken pieces in the soil Keeping fingers crossed!! I don't know which pieces where red and what ones where yellow roses> I had red on one side and yellow on the other Now I just may have a mix which is okay .. laugh What's important is that the pieces take root! thumbup

Oh my goodness! How terrible! It's amazing how strong thunderstorms are out there in your area. Having a thunderstorm here in California is exciting...No threating stuff, but It's interesting to see a straight line wind. My first straight-line wind I saw was in January of 2004. It was amazing!!
It was a beautiful day and around 11am it got so cloudy (DARK) and the wind blow so strong all at once like a hurricane! It was amazing!! No rain fell, but just very strong winds....The rain was to my north.

But anyways, I hope that damage wasn't that much extended. I hope your roses re rooted! this should be the time right??

Oh, Diane, I'm so sorry to hear what happened to your roses. ters Even if the stems don't root I think the mother plants will be okay. wink They'll just take a little while to get back to their original size. :rolleyes:

I love your statue! luv It looks very pretty there. I have St. Francis in my shade garden.

yep, i agree with patches, the mother plant should be ok, i would prune the mother plant down, make a fresh clean cut, and seal it with elmers glue, [that way no disease or pests get into your rose]

Good advice, Sibyl! thumbup Elmer's white glue would be fine to seal the wound. wink Don't use any of the tar-based products frown on the market for sealing wounds because they can cause more dieback and problems on roses. eek

OH DIANE! How terrible for you! kissies will say a prayer to the garden fairy too! I know you can prune your roses back & they will grow new leaves, but I hope replanting them in the ground will root for you! I use Miracle grow root stimulator on EVERYTHING I plant outside. Your backyard is gorgeous by the way! cool

Thanks Penny,, Now to get things back in order out there I don't think the top of the old arch will be stable enough as is I'm thinking of filling the clay pots with sand and rock to give it some stability it's pretty wabblely as is ,, I'm afraid if vines grow on it the weight of the vines make make it lean one way or the other laugh But I'm determined to make this work!! I do have purple hiacynth bean seeds and a few other vining seeds now I'm just deciding which to use!! lala laugh

Diane, for my trellises I buy the green metal fence posts to support them. Since I don't want the wood touching the ground, frown I put a half of a brick under the wood and a stake in the middle then I use plastic ties to secure the trellis. They have kept my trellises secure and in place thumbup through all the strong windstorms we get in the sring. eek They are pretty cheap, about $2.00 for one that is 36" long, but the price goes up a little the longer they are. I get mine at Ace Hardware for about $2.00 each, but I'm sure Lowe's & Home Depot have them too. wink

Here's a picture of a trellis I built that shows what it looks like (the green thing) and how I fastened it. You can see one of the plastic ties above the second cross piece, but there are more higher up because the trellis is over 6". They even have a triangle thing near the bottom to keep the stake in place. thumbup

Diane, you're welcome! wink I think they will do the trick and you will be very pleased. smile They do an awesome job! thumbup

On the ladder trellises I make, I use two, one on each side of the trellis, but I don't think your arch looks very wide, so one in the middle on each side should be fine. wink

Patty the sweet peas are "pastel" seeds I got from Njoynit I don't know if they are fragrant or not but I thought the color would soften all the hardware that will be around it and make the purple hiacynth color 'Pop' in contrast. Oh Oh I snuck in a start of yelta MG flower along with Just in case some of the seeds don't come up it's blue with a purple star in the throat.

I certainly will pass the Message to Jimmy! thumbup grinnnn
