Drooping rose branches

Anonymous added on August 10, 2015 | Answered

The branches on my rose bush are drooping. They are still producing flowers. Should I tie up the branches so they will straighten up? My gardening zone is Philadelphia, Pa.

You might try aluminum plant props as they have a circular head for securing the branch, and the narrow stem of the prop makes it nearly invisible in the garden. You could see if support from props would help the branches gain strength, especially if the rose bush is fairly young. For another possibility, it could be the flowers are weighing down the branches. It also could be that the branches are too long and should be trimmed.
