|I bought a small potted rose a few weeks ago and it did well at first. Now all the leaves are turning brown and falling off. I have kept the soil damp. What should I do to revive my plant?

|Sounds like too much water. Try allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. You can stick your finger down into the soil to check for moisture. If it is still moist an inch below the surface you won't need to water for a few more days. If it feels dry, it's time to water. Roses like to be watered regularly but they also need the soil to dry out a little between waterings. Hope this information helps.
