You didn't give many details so I don't know if the leaf drop was normal end of the season leaf drop or if your roses are water stress or have developed a disease. At this point you can prune your roses back. New growth will develop within the next month or so. Water your roses deeply once or twice a week and feed with a rose food in amounts and with the frequency as listed on the fertilizer label. Hope this information helps!
