    Weak climber

    I have (had) a few good climbing roses (Blaze mostly) that used to grow gangbusters. A tough winter appeared to kill most of the canes, so I pruned it way back. Now, despite being mulched well with composted cow manure, I have nothing but weak spindly stems. Can I still save these roses?

    Its very hard on climbers to have all their canes cut back, they have no energy to make new ones. Try fertilizing with a balanced rose fertilizer and see what happens.
