My husband bought several rose trees for me last year. With the wind here one tree broke. Knowing that it might have been in shock from the planting and the break, I left it in the ground hoping for growth this year. I see none, but the stem seems to ba alive. Please help in what to do. Thanks.

A rose tree is a rose that is grafted onto a hardy rootstock. If the top of your rose tree broke off, what the roots will generate will not be the same as the rose type that was once on top. If this is the case, you may want to replace the rose.

Wish I had better news for you!
