I just transplanted an old climbing rose from my nieghbors house to my house. This rose is very old (maybe 15+ years) and they were going to throw it away. I had a hard time getting it out of the ground, but what I did get was about a foot of the root system which was 4 inches wide. The roses are in full bloom and climb up over my doorway and across my front porch (face east-direct sun).
How can I help it get established? Will it survive with the roots I was able to get out of the hard earth? Please Help
