saving a heather

For the dead one, gently cut away as much of the dead part as possible. Pull it out of the pot, spread the roots gently away from the soil, and cut away dead roots that you see, also. Then go ahead and plant it. It may not live, but then again it may. With plants it’s often “nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
