We have three Absolutely Fabulous standard roses planted a few months ago in the spring and doing marvellously well. Today we came home to find the lawn-mowing people had ring-barked all three. Is there anything we can do to increase their chances of survival (other than getting rid of the lawnmowers, of course?

Hi Patrick, You can put a pruning paste on the wounds to prevent infection, if they are truly ring barked I don’t think they will survive, but you will find that out very quickly. There should be at least a 60cm diameter of mulch (no Weeds) around the roses. This will ensure the weed eater doesn’t get near the trunk, but also ensure the rose stays healthy as the mulch creates a good growing environment for the Roses. (use Kolush Manuka Mulch).

Thanks the Palmers Team
