Oh, flipping flopping roses again! Help please.
My Rose 'Iceberg' has done a droop and has needed to be tied up with string. It is in a 16" diameter pot, and has been for years. It is the first time I have ever known it do this. One of my other ones, 'Eglantyne' (from David Austin Roses) did the same thing recently, and I got in touch with them about it. They said it was probably because it was still only three (?) years old and not fully mature, and that the stems would be stronger and more upright next year. Fair enough. But this Iceberg is mature, and it went over even before the rain came on it. Why? Can anyone advise?
