Q.Will My Dwarf Quince Tree Recover?
I have a potted dwarf quince (the fruiting kind, although it hasn’t fruited yet). This year, I neglected my garden, due to work and an extended illness. As a result, the quince wasn’t watered all during the hot weather, and the leaves all died off and are falling. Watering 8tvsince has seen no change Can the quince survive to next year, and what can I best do to help it? Would it help at all if I brought it indoors to a conservatory for the winter?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the extent of the damage. You can test for signs of life by bending and snapping a small branch tip. If it is brittle, then it is likely not savable. Any area that is pliable is likely able to be saved.
You will want to make sure not to overwater in compensation. That will make things much worse.
In all, the tree will come back over several months to a year with proper care. These articles will help:
Thanks. I didn't have a picture at the time I posted, as I am new here and didn't know you could upload.
I'll try out the stem test, but will take pictures later, when the rain (!) Stops
