RE: Absolutely FURIOUS!

I don't blame you from being furious.  I would first talk with the lawn
service office.  Since you had permission and it certainly is NOT a weed and
their employees should know that, I would ask why it was touched.  Then I
would ask them to replace it, should it not survive AND let them know it is
NOT to be touched in the future.  You will do your own pruning.  Caging it
is a good idea for now, Sue.  It may depend on the variety of rose it is as
to how it responds.  Usually, you don't prune more than a third at any time
the bush is growing, but it is still early enough in the season for your to
give it LOTS of tender loving care with good watering practices and maybe
some good 10-10-10 fertilizer to give it a boost to see if you can bring it
through.  The good thing is that they couldn't touch the rose's roots.  I
imagine it will have to work like crazy to push out leaves for making food,
but I wouldn't give up on it yet.

  I just got home from some errands. As I was walking up the walkway I
noticed that the lawn service had been here. Then I noticed I couldn't see
my rose bush. You guessed it.. The idiots either hacked it down or mowed
over it.. My beautiful 3ft tall bush with BLOOMS on it is now about a foot
tall. I am beside myself. How STUPID are these people?? Any moron must know
what a rose bush looks like, especially when it's got yellow roses all over
it! The landlord said I could have it and told me I could plant it where it
was so I can't blame him. I don't even know if I should say anything to him.
I am however going to the hardware store tomorrow and picking up a tomato
cage to put around what's left of it.. Maybe that will give them a hint! It
was one tall stem at the time-I can't tell if it was broken off or cut off.
It looks pretty clean.
   So experienced rose growers out there, will it grow back? What's left of
it is still healthy and green. I hope it will?
