Don't know how I managed a double post there! Never mind, just take it as double congratulations lol.
Santana, I've been out this morning and cut the rose back to around 4ft, tied it up to some stakes, and the roots are fine, completely undisturbed, so it should be OK. Once we finish chainsawing the tree I'll get an arch or pergola or something. Gave the chairs a good look over as well and not a scratch on them, which really was very lucky.
Love that picture of the lake, very romantic looking.
