I recently planted shrub roses and went away for four days and when I got back the roses were brittle. The leaves were whitering. When I watered them, the leaves re-junivated but the roses are still brittle. Should I cut them off or what should I do?

It's possible that the droughty conditions caused some internal damage to the stems and branches. I would cut off the affected plant parts so your roses can develop healthy new stems and foliage.
