Re: Hello! Rose question...

Sounds like one of the old hardy ones. I would remove the leaves and force
it into dormancy then dig it up bag the roots in some of the soil  then
replant and mulch well. A tough old rose should hang in there with a little
T.L.C. Of course you can also cause it to become dormant then go the bare
root way. (more work). Either way it will have to be cut back, that's why it
has to be dormant . It it's not dormant it will just throw out new tender
shoots. The folks at the antique rose Emporium are experts and they may be
interested in your old rose.  Their web site is www.weAREroses.com .
Good luck !
