My husband has accidently damaged the bark on a rose bush with his strimmer ie stripped most of it off! Any ideas on what I can do to protect it? Many thanks. Janet



wrap it with gaffer tape. its a good a choice as anything else. next spring try and gently remove it.

it will 'heal' over and there will be a 'barky' layer, scarr tissue, though not true bark as such.

Many thanks for your help. I will give it a try.
