Planted first rose garden today, everything wilted
I am hoping to start my first rose garden around the bird bath and planted six, bare root roses today. I followed the instructions per several Youtube videos, put compost down, good soil, dug deep enough, etc. soaked the roses, planted them on a mound of dirt, packed the soil, watered, more soil, more water. About an hour later, all the leaves wilted on every plant.
I talked to the company, Sexton Roses, who told me I should cut off all the green leaves and buds already growing and let new shoots grow instead.
Should I let them be for a few days, keep watering and see how they do or should I cut off the leaves and stems?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
