    My friend bought me a yellow rose for my birthday in February and I must admit, I left it outside and forgot about it. This is it today. Is it salvageable do you think and if so, will it be happy in a large pot? I think it's a climber but the tag blew away so I'm not sure!rose.jpg

    It looks completely dried out, you need to stand it in some water for 15 minutes to re-wet the compost. Wait and see over the next few days to see if any growth appears and keep it moist, not soaked.

    'Amazing what can be done with a little help from the Lord' the minister said. The gardener said ' hmm not so good when he had it all to himself'
