All my roses are wilted after the last cold front that moved into columbus ohio in the last two weeks. The roses were doing great with the spring weather and I did some minor pruning as well. Now all the roses are wilted and look like they are on their last leg. Any chance I can save them? Everyone I talk to is experiencing the same thing. Some of these are rather expensive roses but only a few years old.

I'd wait until the last of the late spring frosts have arrived and then prune the roses down to remove the frost damage. As soon as the weather warms your roses will begin growing again and should make up for lost time.

Best wishes with your beautiful rose bushes!
