Rose leaves curls and appear burnt... - Knowledgebase Question

Recently I followed an advice of a website to dilute some urine for fertilizing. Some newly planted roses were treated this way. The dilution was about couple of tablespoon to two gallon water in a watering can. Now, I see some leaves curl up. Not all. They looked like fertilizer burns. All I can say is that they look like its been detached and dried.

Can the roses recover? Do I need to flush the area with water? (My young Japanese maple also has this type of symptom. Some solution were poured around it.)


P.S. These roses (Mister Lincoln and Kennedy) are suppose to be long stem. But the rose flowers were more like miniature roses in size. These are good roses from a nursery. I am confused. Is it just a symptom of transplant shock or did I get duped by the nursery?
