Cheers for your input Cereoid,
But.... I must say, I'm quite sure with this one it's sun damage! Y'see, it
was left in DIRECT sunlight for close to a week without being watered, when
I got there to take it back to my place, in transit all the dried out leaves
just flaked away. My own miniature rose on the other hand, apart from a
minor attack of red spider mite, is in fine fettle.
So it's almost certainly heat damage, alas. Silly girl! She wants the
plant back now, but when she sees it I bet she won't. :)
