Moving Peggy Martin
I need to move my Peggy Martin Rose which is blooming all along my 6 foot tall fence. My problem is that it has 2 bare canes for the first 4 feet. No growth at the bottom at all. How far back should I cut it when I move it? I am putting it on an 8 x 8 foot lattice trellis, so it would be nice if it started some growth lower down, but it's okay if it grows on the new trellis as it is now. Should I cut it to 1 or 2 feet, leaving just bare canes, or should I cut it at about 5 feet, leaving one foot of leafy growth at the top? Or should I do one cane low, one high? I am taking some cuttings in case I kill it.... advice is appreciated.
