The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Roses

Question: I live on the NW side of Washington state and would like to transplant my roses to a different area in my yard. Is this possible this early in the year without doing damage? They are all full of shoots (I did not cut them back in the fall.)

Answer: Roses should be pruned in March in most areas of the Pacific Northwest, so you're right on time for getting your rose into shape for the new growing season. Transplant now, while the weather's still cool, and your rose should take to its new home with the least amount of stress.
