Question: I cut 2 roots and put them in a pot. now they look bad. they are wild Irish roses. What do I need to do? or is all hope lost. they were a gift, and my land lord won't let me plant them in the ground......

Answer: Linda,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

It is difficult to assess the chances of your plants based on that description. I suggest you keep the soil moist but not soggy as that is deadly. In time if the initial damage was not too severe they should be able to return to normal growth.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
