Pink Rose

I have a pink rose bush that I planted about 5 years ago and each year about 2 or 3 of the roses would bloom.Last year it was hit with a ball and never really took off after that it is not dead and I was wondering if I should dig it up and replant it in fresh soil or if there is something I can do for it without disturbing it that much?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Without being able to see your plant, it's tough to say much without being able to see it in person. I'd start by pruning out any dead or broken branches. Do that now, before new growth starts.

 

Other than that, be sure the rose is in a spot that sees full sun. You might spread an inch or two of compost over the soil around your plant. Other than that, be sure to keep it watered during times of drought. You may not need to do anything else to help it get going again this year.
