have had to cut back my climbing rose as it seems to have dry stems and isnt growing have cut back to stage when i bought it and as yet isnt recovering, the stems arent brown they look green but very dried



give it some good fed like miracle grow , hopefully it will perk up after that

how long have you had it? When you planted it did you give it lots of loose soil for the roots to penetrate? I suggest you need to give it lots of water and very little feed. the plant needs to get a strong root system going in the first place. Too much feed now will compromise the way it takes up water.
Hope this helps.

the annoying thing is there is no visible sign of die back but no buds and no new growth, just withered stems .

have let it re establiush itself in the front of house and so far no luck-------- might try miracle grow
