Answer: Your rose is probably in shock, but it may recover. Prune it back by about half to compensate for the roots lost during transplanting. Keep the soil slightly moist like a wrung out sponge, not sopping wet and never dried out. Use an organic mulch over the root area, apply it in a flat layer about three inches thick. Do not try fertilizing, the watering is more important right now. Hopefully, it will survive. Next spring resume normal pruning and fertilizing. Good luck!
