Spring or fall is the best time to transplant roses. Avoid heat stress or frost for optimal growth.
Roses are resilient. Dig up the rose carefully, aiming to get as much of the root ball as possible.
Pruning is not necessary during transplanting. It can cause more harm than good, leading to transplant shock.
Choose a location with 6-8 hours of direct sun, free of root competition, and with well-drained soil.
Backfill the hole with native soil and apply organic mulch to retain moisture. Avoid fertilizing at this stage.
New transplants need consistent moisture. Water deeply when planting, and then twice a week during cooler months.
Hydration is crucial in summer. In winter, transplant the rose into a container that can be sheltered from the cold.
