What to do about frost damage?
Do to an unusually heavy and late frost, I find that the new spring growth on most of my roses is soggy and brown, and hanging limply from the canes. Should I prune this off, or just leave it to fall off on it's own. Should I prune again, a little harder? Truth be told I did not prune as hard this year and could afford to cut back another 6 inches or so. the canes still appear green. Would this encourage more new growth? Makes me sad to look at all that lost new growth. Any advice appreciated.
