Transplanting roses the right way
Maybe the most important thing to consider when transplanting roses, is choosing the best time of the year. The roses need to be dormant when they are transplanted. This means that this should be done in the early spring, when the weather is warmer and they roses have not yet begun their growth.
You can also transplant them in the fall, when the soil is still warm enough. This will help the plant reestablish itself.
Preparing the spot for the planting is very important. You need to dig a hole that is a lot larger than root ball. This helps the plant fix it’s roots better in the loose soil. Make a mound in the center of the hole and gently spread the roots over it.
Water the soil well after transplantation.
Before moving the plant in its new location, you can check the plant for diseases. Make sure you do not harm the plant.
To stimulate the plant to grow, add phosphate to the soil to make it more fertile. You should also use some compost.
After transplanting it, prune out the twigs in the middle of the rose bush. Always make cuts at a 45 degrees angle. Remove all dead leaves, buds and twigs. You can remove 1/3 of the bush without harming the plant.
Cover the plant with a cone or a white plastic bag and keep it covered for at least 2 weeks. This warm environment will help the plant settle.
