|I bought 3 grape vines from H/D about 10 days ago and planted them in the yard.The vines had green leaves on them. We had a frost and the foliage wilted. I hope the vines will recover. Should I prune the wilted leaves? Thanks

|Sorry about the frost! Grapevines are quite vigorous so I expect yours will develop new stems and leaves as soon as the weather stays consistently warm. I'd just leave the dead foliage alone for now. I know it looks terrible but you don't want to clip or prune the stems or they will begin growing again = and it might be too early for that to be safe. Just leave them alone and they'll recover. Best wishes with your grapevines.
