Roses Starting to Catch Up Now
Many of my roses were starting to put on new growth and were pinched back by that late freeze in March. I lost all the blooms on two plum trees. The trees are recovering and the roses are starting to put on new growth again. Many of the stems were killed back to between 8 and 12 inches and the leaves died. I had to prune all the dead parts off, all the way back to where the new growth was coming out. Many daffs went into shock and failed to bloom. All the grape hyacinths are doing fine.
