Hey there, my husband accidentally sprayed my rose bush with weed killer as he was spraying the front lawn. He did this pre-season so the roses did not start to sprout (about 2 months ago). Now that they have sprouted, they are puny and barely growing. Some of the stems don't have buds at all. They used to produce big beautiful flowers. Any suggestions on how to revive my poor rose bush?

Well it certainly isn't dead. All you can really do is to give it normal care and wait for it to recover. Roses can be remarkably resilient.

Keep it well watered, and don't push it with fertilizers. It may take a year, but if it's lived this long, it will probably recover.

Ditto what has been said. I had a Hot Cocoa that got Round Upped and it took a couple of years for it to return to normal but it did come back.
