What are the steps for transplanting a rose bush from one part of a home garden to another?

Posted under Home gardening tips | No Comment

We are remodelling our house.This will entail some rose bushes being uprooted and lost, unless we properly relocate them in another part of our garden. Any tips?

prune the top by atleast half,
dig it out taking as much soil as possible,
place in the new hole,
fill with water,
put in the rest of the soil from the hole
and press down firmly.

dont plant any deeper than it was in the previous hole.

    JUST LEAVE A GOOD ROOT BALL, ON THE ROSE BUSHES. IT SHOULD BE FINE.

    Why not take a cutting.
    This is how the nurseries do it and you do not risk the parent plant.

    Leave a big root ball and have the new hole ready for planting. If there are any flowers on the plant I would cut them off because it takes too much energy from the plant and it will need all of it's energy to recover from the shock. Give it plenty of water every day.
