From what I understand the issue with frost is only with the very new growth that pruning stimulates. So if you've only just pruned the roses a frost shouldn't be too much of a problem...

And their is the option to not prune at all. I never pruned my roses, except the dead wood, until I had to move my roses here. I thought 'why prune off what the rose has only got to grow again' and I am lazy. I did read by prunning you are tricking the rose into producing new young growth because it has been attacked and on its last legs ( my added bit ). Also a survey was done where they found a rose could be left three years before it may need a prune. I did prune my cut roses I had in my hot house because they grew so quick, also my ramblers when I needed to tidy them off the pathway. I won't be prunning them much down here as I have given them all heaps of room to grow and spread. Some teas don't like being pruned.

i live in a very frosty place (April to November) as my avatar picture can atest to (frost on a rugosa fruit), and i prune about every three years or so but mainly to cut out the diseased wood and the wood damaged by the frost..I am not worried about a frost soon after i prune.. it is the late frosts from August to November that we get on the northern tablelands that cut back new growth that is so debilitating.. there is very little that one can do with the growth bursting forward.. except these three things that can help. Spray new growth with seasol, use a dark mulch that radiates heat back to the plant at night and leave last season's dead perennial companion plants (e.g. salvias) to hug the rose plant until frost is unlikely. I have to prune conrad ferdinand meyer more frequently though because it gets stuck in my husband's head when he walks down the verandah Coming up Roses
