Gloria,

How long are the remaining canes that are lying on the ground? Post a photo if you can.

Gloria, I think it's great that they're blooming after being eaten and knocked flat. I'm sure they'll start growing vertically on their own as soon as they've recovered completely.

Perhaps they are just "laying low" in case the deer are still around.

I agree with Porkpal, they won't be eaten way down there. :-)

Mike the canes are about one and a half feet long I was thinking of cutting them back but thought they had been through enough stress for a while !!

thanks girls !!! I think I'll have to come up with a plan this fall as they ate the tree too ;0(

Bambi burgers work great on detering the deer. :)

as far as the roses being crawlers you can try peony cages. They're like tomato cages, just wider and shorter.
