I have had a beautiful pink rambling rose in my garden for a few years but it was suffering increasingly from black spot and nothing I did to it cured the problem. I took the decision to cut it down last summer right to the ground with the intention of digging it out and putting something else in its place. Unfortunately I spent 10 weeks in hospital and it grew back again. It hasn't bloomed this year and although the leaves look good I think it might be the root stock that is growing. Do I pull the whole thing out again or see if it is the original plant next year?
