Q.Can’t tell if my jasmine plant is a goner or not

Zone Vancouver | Bridge added on January 14, 2017 | Answered

Classic case of leaving my plant while I was home for the holidays. Came back to it still green but dried out. I pruned off all the dead leaves and cut back the stems. They’re still green but quite brittle. Not sure what to make of the roots. In the pictures, everything that isn’t green was under the soil. Any insight is appreciated!

Since your jasmine's stems are still green and the roots look healthy, I think they will grow back. Just replant it in a container that has good drainage and isn't too large (since small containers hold less water and the plant doesn't have any foliage to use up water right now). Water sparingly and don't fertilize until it begins to regrow.
